The Woodrow Wilson Leadership School (WWLS) is a biennial undergraduate leadership program that focuses on education and training led by Fraternity staff, alumni, and volunteers. This program also serves as an important component of our Fraternity governance, as this program also hosts District Council meetings & Archon elections.

The 2019 WWLS is scheduled to occur at Butler University in Indianapolis, IN from June 19-23.

As the Fraternity’s approach to member development continues to evolve, so does our flagship leadership program. The 2019 version is built around the Fraternity’s new continued education program: the Men of Excellence program. At the core of the Men of Excellence program is the Fraternity’s Wellness Wheel model, which focuses on six core dimensions of health: emotional, physical, spiritual, social, intellectual and professional. Phi Kappa Psi believes that any member who can focus his efforts on self-improvement in these six areas will develop healthier habits and is more likely to contribute to society in a positive way. He will become a Man of Excellence.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday of WWLS will each be focused on education and training around two dimensions of the Wellness Wheel. Guided by a group of talented member and non-member facilitators, students will navigate through a series of interactive general, breakout and small group sessions over five days, leaving with a renewed sense of pride in Phi Kappa Psi and a plan to improve themselves and their chapter.

Registration for the 2019 Woodrow Wilson Leadership School is now open!

Your dues and premiums are budgeted to send two brothers maximum to WWLS. All chapters and colonies are required to send at least one representative.

How do our members register?

A chapter president, vice president, corresponding secretary, treasurer or advisor must register members through the Phi Psi Portal on their behalf. After you log in, on the home page you will see a dropdown box labeled ‘More’, select the first option and follow the instructions. Registration closes on May 17th at 11:59 pm ET.

What if additional brothers want to attend WWLS?

General undergraduates that are not delegated through their chapter, but still wish to attend WWLS have the option to do so. The cost for these members is $400 plus travel and they can register themselves by visiting this link.

District Council Meetings and Archon Elections

A critical aspect of WWLS is the District Council Meetings to elect the new slate of Archons, who represent a majority of the Phi Kappa Psi Executive Council. These new Archons will serve until the following WWLS in 2021. If you are interested in running for District Archon, please learn more and apply here.
