The North-American Interfraternity Conference is pleased to announce that the following undergraduate students have been chosen to serve as mentors for the 2013 Jon Williamson Futures Quest.  Each of these students was chosen from a pool of over 145 applicants, all of whom are graduates of either Futures Quest or the Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute.

Futures Quest is an emerging leaders institute sponsored by the NIC, and is a unique experience that provides new fraternity members with an experience that is broader than their own chapter.  At Futures Quest, participants will learn new skills related to ethical decision making and problem solving, conflict management, values integration, and effectively taking risks. All of this is then correlated to the pivotal role that fraternal values play in both leadership and being a fraternity man. At Futures Quest, participants are challenged to answer the question of what does it mean to lead a fraternity and then provide the skills necessary to make that vision a reality. 

Mentors were chosen based upon their own leadership experiences as well as their ability to inspire and create lasting change in their own chapters and communities.  Each mentor will play a significant role in the program by not only facilitating portions of the curriculum, but also by serving as a guide and role model to the men in attendance as they begin their journey as fraternity men who will lead their organizations forward. Please join us in congratulating the following men and women who have been chosen to mentor at Futures Quest:
