When you took the oath at initiation, you pledged yourself to a lifetime of sisterhood. As alumnae, you have the opportunity to take advantage of all that our sisterhood has to offer. Whether networking in a new city, attending an event for professional development, or helping undergraduate chapters grow and thrive, your opportunities are endless.
In today’s world, women are accomplishing many things. As we navigate life, careers and relationships, our plates are often full. Staying as connected to our sisterhood as much as we were in school can be a challenge, but the Delta Phi Epsilon sisterhood is always valuable.
Whether you stay connected through our social media pages, attend an event in your area, join an alumnae association, advise a local chapter, or even invest in the future through a donation to the Educational Foundation, you will always have a place with your sisterhood here at DPhiE.
Have you been thinking about reconnecting with DPhiE? DPhiE was where you found friendship, growth, acceptance and support. Now is the time to come back home to Delta Phi Epsilon. Get involved, give back and remember what sisterhood can be. We are waiting for you!
Sometimes this transition into alumnae sisterhood can be daunting. Where do you start to connect? Who do you call? How can you give back to the sisterhood that has given you so many friends and memories? Wherever you are on the spectrum, there is an opportunity for you to stay connected and engaged in Delta Phi Epsilon.
The best way to begin your alumna journey is by joining an alumnae association. Alumnae associations can provide friendships in a new city, a professional network, mentorship and opportunities to serve the local community.
Being a sister of Delta Phi Epsilon means being part of a group of thousands of women who empower one another and make an impact within their communities. Alumnae associations are opportunities for our alumnae sisters to reconnect, make new friends and avail themselves to the power and experience of our sisters. Sisters from all chapters and all ages who live close by to one another are encouraged to join and hold leadership positions within an association.
We encourage our alumnae associations to support local collegiate chapters and stay aprised of Delta Phi Epsilon’s initiatives and programs that will continue to support a strong sisterhood.
Do you miss the special relationships and support you found as a Delta Phi Epsilon undergraduate sister? Are you in an area without an alumnae association? Starting an alumnae association is easier than you think. There might already be sisters near you trying to form one.
Our alumnae services department at IHQ supports new and reorganizing associations. If you need assistance, resources and support, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

Delta Phi Epsilon is passionate about our mission to create a sense of belonging for all members.

Our Educational Foundation collects donations to fund scholarships, advocacy and inclusion programming, leadership events and the International Leadership Consultant program, while alumnae dues are used to fund the alumnae engagement-operating budget. The operating budget is used to keep alumnae ticket prices low for Engage U, the Alumnae Leadership Academy, and ILF, and also aids in the chartering of new alumnae associations.
We encourage you to continue making donations to the Educational Foundation in addition to your annual alumnae dues!
Yes and no. Most alumnae chapters will include the $19.17 in the chapter dues and the Operations Lead will make sure the payment goes through to IHQ. However, the alumnae dues are used to fund IHQ’s alumnae operating budget while chapter dues are used for local programming.
