The Blueprint Program is an innovative and interactive program that leads participants through their collegiate career with a structure for life-long learning. The program has four levels members seek to attain: Initiation, Order of the Founders, Knights of Classic Lore, and Fraternity for Life.
This groundbreaking cornerstone program allows participants to select their own curriculum. Each level has three modules: Mental, Moral, and Social Development. Within each module are seven to twelve tasks of which participants are required to complete between two to five. Each member is given an opportunity to complete activities they believe will help them in their future that are both exciting and entertaining. There are individual tasks as well as those that can be completed in a group setting.
The program benefits both Tau Kappa Epsilon and each individual member. The organization asks for commitments from both entities that want to adopt this program to ensure its success. The major commitments are that the program will be done devoid of hazing and that the group commits to complete the program in its entirety, not relegating the program to a certain group of individuals within the group. We believe that this will enhance our brotherhood and build better men, which will in turn build a better world.
Xi-Lambda is utilizing the blueprint to help develop candidates to become contributing members of our chapter, our university, and our community. We hold high standards for each member and expect involvement in the chapter, on campus, and throughout the community. To ensure our members understand the expectations of each other they work through a six week education period with the member educator to learn the myriad workings of a Teke chapter:
- Organizing philanthropic, brotherhood, social, and recruitment events
- Time management
- Proper dress
- Understanding the members
- Becoming physically and mentally healthy
- Effective study strategies and techniques
- Communication and public speaking skills
- Completing a candidate project that benefits the new member class and the chapter
- Planning and holding a new member retreat structured around goal setting and personal development
All of our education is utilized to promote the focus points of scholarship, character, leadership, service, teamwork, and brotherhood. With these focus points, and the principles for which we stand, love, charity, and esteem, the Xi-Lambda Chapter is quickly developing our members into outstanding role models and campus leaders at the University of Georgia.
