Cornerstones 2013 update

For over 100 years, Acacia has offered young leaders the opportunity to pursue personal and professional development with our fraternity serving as the foundation. When a member actively serves his chapter, campus, and community, he is exemplifying the ideal Acacia experience. Seven years ago, the International Council and International Conclave adopted a membership development program in support of that vision, and Cornerstones emerged. The program today has evolved from those early days. Cornerstones in action

Cornerstones is a step-by-step program that guides individual members through defining their personal values, setting goals, creating an action plan, and seeking experiential learning opportunities. These activities provide a foundation for success on campus and after college.

At the chapter level, Cornerstones encourages activities like hosting guest speakers, attending a presentation on campus, participating in athletics and the arts, and practicing our motto, Human Service.

This semester we are excited to announce the launch of a new Cornerstones website at This is where active members can find everything they need to get started on the Personal Development Program and where chapters can find ideas to promote learning and personal development within the chapter.
