Residential Learning Community
Baker SigEp is an accredited Residential Learning Community. In fact, Baker SigEp was the second RLC in history and has set standards for RLCs since. For SigEp, a learning community incorporates collaboration between academic professionals, undergraduates, the university, and the chapter facility where there is an incredible opportunity for personal growth and educational development.
Through academic guidance, faculty and alumni interaction, personal and professional development, social events, and athletics, SigEp creates a well-rounded college experience. With SigEp you will be more successful in your transition to college, more involved on campus, and better prepared for life after college.
Faculty members are a key component of the RLCs, too. They take a personal interest in your academic career, get to know you very well, and advise you individually. Some Faculty Fellows host for-credit classes, seminars, and lectures for SigEps right inside the facility. Studies show that by being part of a residential college, you will be more satisfied with college life, have a higher GPA and—most importantly—you are far more likely to graduate.
SigEp is the first and only educational foundation and Greek letter organization with a successful, comprehensive Residential Learning Community program.
Faculty Fellow Dr. Kevin McCarthy
Baker SigEp is proud to have Dr. Kevin McCarthy volunteer his time as the Faculty Fellow for the chapter. Dr. McCarthy was initiated into the fraternity as a Renaissance Brother. He has served as Faculty Fellow for nearly ten years and has provided a wealth of knowledge to our members concerning their success during and after college. The Faculty Fellow is an essential part of a Residential Learning Community and helps build the scholastic success of the chapter. Dr. McCarthy facilitates networking, career preparation and advice on internship and jobs.
