Our Evanston, Illinois Headquarters

The The J. Dwight Peterson International Fraternity Headquarters of Sigma Chi, located in downtown Evanston, Ill., is home of Sigma Chi’s official museum and professional staff.


More than 40 full-time employees work for one of five different entities represented at Headquarters, also known affectionately as “HQ.” All are working to drive Sigma Chi closer to its vision of being the “preeminent collegiate leadership development organization — aligned, focused and living our core values.” The entities housed at Headquarters are:

The Sigma Chi Fraternity

The Fraternity staff focuses on driving undergraduate and alumni programs and resources. From staffing Balfour Leadership Training Workshop logistics to overseeing the implementation of various leadership and educational programs, from crafting each issue of The Magazine of Sigma Chi to developing cutting-edge technologies for the Fraternity, this professional staff provides critical behind-the-scenes functions.

The Sigma Chi Foundation

The Foundation serves as an educational funding resource for the undergraduate and graduate student members of the Fraternity. The Sigma Chi Foundation is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization, and donations to it are tax-deductible. Click here to learn more about the Sigma Chi Foundation.

The Risk Management Foundation
