The core value of integrity means doing what we saying we are going to do. It is about ensuring we are achieving academically. It is about being true to ourselves and our personal and moral obligations. It is about following the expectations, guidelines and laws put before us. Integrity is about making sure Pi Beta Phi is not just a club, but a model for our way of life, just as it was for our 12 founders.
Programming in this area will help us observe, practice and promote academic, personal and social responsibility.

The goal of this seminar is to encourage members to recognize how Pi Phi's core values are or are not being portrayed by public figures such as musicians, artists, authors, actors, media broadcasters, athletes and others. Members are encouraged to reflect on their own core values and how they portray these to others.

Owning My Academics
Balancing the rigors of academic success can often be daunting, and how college students achieve academic success may be controversial and seem unfair at times. By engaging in this seminar, participants will interact in a group scenario and discover a variety of academic resources.
This seminar talks about behaviors within the Fraternity and within a chapter that are inappropriate or destructive, yet as observers of these acts, we sit on the sideline as bystanders and fail to step in and take "responsibility" for each other. Response Ability was developed by Beck & Company (www.beck-company.com) and written in 2008. The program has been endorsed and supported by Pi Beta Phi as an educational resource.
What Do You Stand For?
We talk about Integrity being one of Pi Beta Phi’s core values, but what does that actually mean? In this seminar, you will take a closer look at your personal integrity and evaluate how your actions align (or don’t align) with what you feel you stand for. Participants will then write personal goals for how to lead a life as a person of integrity.
