ZBT partners with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) to provide many opportunities for Israel education and promotion. Annually we send brothers to the AIPAC Policy Conference, the largest gathering of pro-Israel Americans, in March. It’s an opportunity for brothers to meet students from around the country and network with other campus delegates with a similar mindset while growing the bonds of brotherhood through this important Mission-driven work.
Lobbying in Washington, D.C.
ZBT sends brothers to the U.S. Capitol each spring to lobby with the North American Interfraternity Conference on behalf of Greek students in areas such as campus safety, fair housing and equality issues.
Our work with Jewish Women International (JWI) also affords brothers opportunities to call for reform in areas related to healthy relationships and campus safety.
For questions about these opportunities, email Chief Executive Officer Libby Anderson, CAE, or call her at (317) 334-1898.
The Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute is a three-day institute that brings together fraternity men and sorority women from across North America to create opportunities to explore, define and enhance their leadership skills, personal awareness, commitment to their fraternity or sorority, and grow to expect values based action from themselves and those they lead. At UIFI, you will be given the skills to improve your own leadership abilities and positively affect your chapter, council and community. UIFI is facilitated by the Association for Fraternal Leadership and Values (AFLV). Learn more.
ZBT offers scholarships fund the complete program fee for brothers who are selected.

Foundation for International Education
Brothers are encouraged to take advantage of ZBT’s semester program in London that incorporates 14 weeks of study through the Foundation for International Education. The semester is divided into two phases with an orientation at the start and a mid-term break, for a total of 15.5 weeks.
A semester with FIE in London prepares ZBT brothers to build on their existing competencies, skills, attitudes, beliefs and experiences needed to compete and cooperate in the world marketplace.
- Study British Life and Cultures or British Life in Europe (required Key Course)
- Interactions with fraternity members in London and discuss similarities and differences between U.K. and U.S. fraternity life
- Work or Service internship opportunities (integrated experiences combining workplace experience and academic discussion and reflection)
- Self-directed research opportunity. (Under faculty guidance, a brother can undertake independent, London-based qualitative research)
