Kappa Epsilon Collegiate Chapter Awards

Collegiate chapter awards are selected by Grand Council based on all submitted reports, chapter visitations and conference calls, and Grand Council’s interaction with chapters. The Grand Council meets twice a biennium to specifically review all of these criteria and identify award winners that are then presented at the National Convention.

Awards

Outstanding Chapter

This award is presented to the collegiate chapter with a strong year in all areas. An all-inclusive approach is taken to identify the chapter that stands out. Beyond exemplifying the Kappa Epsilon bond among members, the recipient chapter demonstrates strong recruitment and new member education, meaningful national projects programming, and various community service, scholastic, and leadership development programs that go beyond yearly requirements. 

Outstanding New Member Recruitment

This award is presented to the chapter with an outstanding new member recruitment program. While the number of members recruited is reviewed, it is not the sole focus. Rather, the recipient chapter exemplifies the bond and spirit of Kappa Epsilon throughout recruitment and new member education programming, staying true to the mission of the Fraternity. Special focus is paid to unique programming ideas and bonding cultivated throughout the new member education period.

National Project – Breast & Ovarian Cancer Awareness

This award recognizes a chapter with impactful programming in the areas of breast and/or ovarian cancer. Special focus is paid to community outreach and unique programming ideas. 

Alumni Outreach

As alumni chapters do not currently have mandatory reports, this award is selected based on the events hosted by alumni chapters across the nation. Involvement with collegiate chapters and members is strongly encouraged and given special focus.

Community Service Award

This award highlights a chapter that has gone above and beyond to give back to the community they live in. Community service does not have to be in relation to the National Projects, rather is often completely separate. Special focus is paid to unique programming ideas and continued service throughout the biennium.

Kappa Epsilon Rose Chapter

This award was developed during the 2017-2019 biennium. It is presented to the chapters that meet their fraternal obligations of on-time submission of all collegiate reports and member dues.

Continued Excellence

This award is presented to a chapter that has demonstrated significant strength in all areas of both years of the biennium. This includes exemplifying the Kappa Epsilon bond among members, strong new member recruitment and education programming, meaningful breast and/or ovarian cancer awareness programs, as well as a variety of community service, scholastic, and leadership programs. 

Outstanding Alumni Chapter

As alumni chapters do not currently have mandatory reports, this award is selected based on the events hosted by alumni chapters across the nation. Involvement with collegiate chapters and members is strongly encouraged and given special focus.  

Outstanding Advisor

This award was created to recognize advisors who go above and beyond in their commitment to the Fraternity and their individual collegiate chapter. The recipient is an active collegiate chapter advisor that has made significant contributions to a Kappa Epsilon collegiate chapter. Contributions can be time, energy, or whatever else the collegiate chapter needed to thrive throughout the biennium. Nominations (often from collegiate members) are submitted online, via the designated form, by March 15th each year. All nominations received during the biennium are reviewed prior to the National Convention and an award recipient and honorable mention are selected by Grand Council.
