Leadership, Education, and Development (LEAD) is Alpha Kappa Psi’s new pilot pledge education program. It is designed as a standardized approach to pledge education to ensure all incoming members learn consistent fraternity history and expectations, while still providing chapters the opportunity to tailor the experience to their chapter and university. During the program, pledges build an awareness and appreciation for the history, values, and vision of Alpha Kappa Psi and are introduced to the key skills and practices needed to be successful in the workplace.
