UIFI is the premier leadership development experience
for fraternity and sorority members, and is an experience unlike any other. It
is not a conference. It is not a workshop. It is a uniquely holistic journey
that you share with other interfraternal brothers and sisters. A UIFI graduate
not only learns important leadership lessons, but also reaches deep insides
him/herself to find their true fraternal calling. He or she is changed forever.
