Expansion is the process of starting new chapters, or re-colonizing inactive chapters. TKE is in the business of student and relationship development. With that in mind, TKE is always interested in opportunities to expand to supportive colleges and universities, so that we may offer more students the benefits our fraternity provides. In fact, we have a full-time paid Assistant Director of Chapter Services who direct our expansion efforts, as well as an Expansion Team who is charged with finding, recruiting and educating high caliber undergraduates and training the local advisory team. When they are working on an expansion project, the Expansion Team is on-site for weeks to even months, building an interest group and helping it become a colony. When the group becomes a colony, our Area Servicing Team helps them to become a chapter.
Sometimes a group of interested students will contact us, sometimes it's a group of alumni, sometimes we select the campus, and other times the university contacts us. Regardless of how we get involved, we start off with an initial assessment of students, alumni, and the campus. From there, we determine the resources available for the expansion project and how we will proceed.
If you are interested in working with us to bring a TKE Chapter to your campus, please let us know and fill out an Expansion Request.
