The study presented in this article examined the contributions of ritual to the fraternity experience, as well as challenges that exist for fraternity men in order to frame an examination of leadership, moral, and student development gains, measured on a leadership continuum, using data from the 2012 administration of the Multi-Institutional Study of Leadership, while controlling for institution size and sexuality. The findings reveal a picture of near parity in the development of leadership constructs between fraternity men and non-affiliated men, with some exceptions.
