As the MIT Chapter of Beta Theta Pi, we are committed to developing as leaders, innovators, and men of principle. The Beta Theta Pi general fraternity offers many leadership growth opportunities, and our chapter sends as many brothers as possible through each of these events. Our executive team features roles in many disciplines, including programming, finance, housing, and recruitment. Graduating brothers who served on our executive team often have years of serious leadership experience and professional development. If you're looking for an opportunity to grow as a leader, Beta has the opportunities you need to meet and exceed your goals.

For Unaffiliated Men
Men of Principle Scholarship
The Men of Principle Scholarship Grant Program was established in 1999 by the Beta Theta Pi general fraternity to help individual chapters and recognize unaffiliated (non-Greek) male students on college campuses who share our values. We seek to reward these men for their devotion to the values that the Fraternity holds dear to our hearts – mutual assistance, intellectual growth, trust, integrity and responsible conduct – and for outspoken, positive leadership in our communities.
Our chapter typically offers two (2) Men of Principle Scholarships to unaffiliated male MIT students, each worth $250.
Wooden Institute for Men of Principle
The Wooden Institute is an incredible opportunity for initiated Betas that focuses on the ritual of Beta Theta Pi and becoming a better leader. The Wooden Institute allows Betas to interact with brothers and Friends of Beta from across North America. Participants share ideas, dissect Fraternity ritual, partake in challenging activities that focus on leadership skills, learn more about the history of Beta Theta Pi and reflect on the Fraternity’s heritage.
Our chapter sends as many newly initiated brothers to the Wooden Institute as are able. You can learn more about the Wooden Institute here.
Keystone Regional Leadership Conference
The Keystone Regional Leadership Conference is a high quality, regional education experience focusing on chapter officer development, principled leadership and volunteer training. Keystone received the Excellence in Educational Programming Award from the Association of Fraternity/Sorority Advisors in December 2008.
Our chapter sends most of our elected officers to Keystone. You can learn more about Keystone here.
Chapter Presidents Leadership Academy
The Chapter Presidents Leadership Academy (CPLA) provides an opportunity for a chapter president to visit the Fraternity's founding site in Oxford, Ohio. What follows is three days of intense leadership training and networking with other undergraduate presidents. This program concentrates on personal and chapter leadership.
Our chapter sends our president to CPLA every year, most recently Keith Mokry. You can learn more about CPLA here.
