Enterprise Leadership of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority Announces New Strategic Direction for 2019-2021

Philadelphia, PA – Delta Phi Epsilon leadership announced today the new strategic direction and plan for the enterprise. The strategic plan will guide the organization and position Delta Phi Epsilon as a leader for positive values that strengthen our communities and the sorority experience on campus. The new plan focuses heavily on advocacy in the areas of diversity, inclusion and issues that affect women.

“This plan is very progressive. I am proud of the leadership of our organization in their willingness to tackle the tough issues and have the courageous conversations as this is important work to move the sorority forward,” says International President Stacy Segal, Psi Chapter at the University of Georgia.

In February 2018, the International Governing Board, Educational Foundation Board of Directors, the National Development Corporation Board of Trustees and executive staff team from the International Headquarters met for a strategic planning retreat. Invited speakers included leaders in the fraternal community from a variety of important groups in the sector including university administration and the Fraternity/Sorority Political Action Committee. The board members and executive staff listened as the guests shared important trends in higher education and legislation that impact fraternity/sorority life on campuses across North America. The new direction was set after hours of critical discussion and reflection.

“Through this plan Delta Phi Epsilon is taking a significant step toward truly upholding our value of justice,” said Nicole DeFeo, International Executive Director.

Delta Phi Epsilon has started to set parts of the plan into motion. The formation of a Diversity and Inclusion Task Force is underway. Full implementation of the plan will begin in July 2018.
