The Sorority’s new peer-facilitated member development program’s creation was fueled by feedback from Alpha Sigma Tau collegians and alumnae and their desire to ensure their sorority experience was contributing to their development as a leader in today’s world. The groundbreaking program is based on eight competencies that great women leaders possess. These consist of:
- Being genuine
- Communicating effectively
- Possessing expertise
- Striving for personal life balance
- Valuing and maintaining relationships
- Contributing to society
- Being confident
- Innovating and managing change.
The Sorority launched the pilot process of its four-year member development program in the fall of 2012. The program is currently being tested with 14 chapters, who were selected through a rigorous application process, and the whole four-year member development program will be launched to all Alpha Sigma Tau collegiate chapters in 2014.
The following chapters have embarked on a journey that will define and solidify the details of the four-year membership development program.
- Alpha, Eastern Michigan University
- Psi, James Madison University
- Alpha Phi, West Chester University
- Beta Delta, Duquesne University
- Beta Eta, Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville
- Beta Pi, Eastern Illinois University

A special thank you to all chapters that applied to be selected as a Pilot Chapter as well as those chapters and advisors making the commitment to enhance the development of this program.
This program is made possible by a generous grant from the Alpha Sigma Tau Foundation.
