Sigma Chi was founded on June 28, 1855 at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio when members split from Delta Kappa Epsilon. Sigma Chi has seven founding members: Benjamin Piatt Runkle, Thomas Cowan Bell, William Lewis Lockwood, Isaac M. Jordan, Daniel William Cooper, Franklin Howard Scobey, and James Parks Caldwell. Sigma Chi is a part of the Miami Triad, along with Beta Theta Pi and Phi Delta Theta.
Sigma Chi's purpose is to promote the concepts of Friendship, Justice, and Learning; to build brotherhood and life-long membership among members from all walks of life. Its mission statement is to develop values-based leaders committed to the betterment of character, campus and community. Sigma Chi's vision statement is "to become the preeminent collegiate leadership development organization-aligned, focused and living our core values".
The Beta Epsilon chapter of Sigma Chi proudly supports the Huntsman Cancer Institute. The Huntsman Cancer Institute is part of the University of Utah Health Care system and serves cancer patients throughout the Intermountain west and also provides academic and clinical training for future physicians and researchers.
Huntsman Cancer Institute's mission is to understand cancer from its beginnings, to use that knowledge in the creation and improvement of cancer treatments, to relieve the suffering of cancer patients, and to provide education about cancer risk, prevention, and care.
