As an undergraduate, Delta Phi Epsilon is where you grow. Our sorority provides you with a space to be challenged, lead with values, make mistakes and flourish as a woman. As an alumna, you can continue to be provided with these opportunities within our sisterhood. Network with your sisters at one of our many in-person events across the country. Whether you come to reconnect, reminisce, gain skills or network, there is something for you.
There are numerous chapter-based programs that our sisters use to excel in different aspects of collegiate life. All programs are member-led, with assistance provided through online tools, volunteers, and headquarters staff.
The STAR Program provides New Members with an opportunity to share ideas and insights on how to get the most from your college experience. The STAR Program focuses on issues that are relevant and important to New Members - like time management and study skills. The New Member Educator facilitates discussions and provides insight while new members talk about campus based academic resources. Initiated sisters with top academic performance also facilitate and mentor New Members through this program on how to succeed academically at the campus. This program provides another outlet to strengthen the bond of sisterhood.
Team Excellence is the governing structure of Delta Phi Epsilon collegiate chapters and invites all members to take part in the operations of the sorority, thus increasing individual member involvement and commitment. Such an opportunity increases chapter participation, while enhancing the leadership and management skills of each and every member. Through Team Excellence, chapters have a Leadership Team, instead of an Executive Board. This team consists of a President, VP of Operations, VP of Programming, VP of Recruitment, VP of Membership Development, VP of Academic Affairs, VP of House Management (for housed chapters), and a Member at Large. Each VP, as well as the Member at Large, maintains sub-teams of coordinators that organize various chapter events, such as philanthropic programming, recruitment, sisterhood and social events, etc.
The Delta Phi Epsilon PEARL (Personal Enrichment Activities for Responsible Living) Program presents opportunities for both new and initiated members to contribute to their personal development, the sorority and surrounding communities. The opportunities members choose will vary dependent upon their level of experience and changing needs. All members will participate in PEARL experiences in the five core areas of the sorority: Self, Scholarship, Sisterhood, Social and Service.
The Chapter Assessment Program (CAP) is the tool used to uphold our Sorority’s Standards of Excellence that are outlined in our International Constitution and Bylaws. Our Standards are measured by this point-based program. Each chapter is awarded a star measurement based on the total number of points they have earned each year, with the pinnacle of excellence at 1917 points to honor our founding year. The 1917 Club Chapters guide and influence decisions at the international level. They are the voice of the collegiate membership to our Governing Board.
Delta Phi Epsilon's Values Based Recruitment training and manual provides members with the tools needed to recruit quality women who share like values and morals with the chapter. A series of communication exercises to help identify DPhiE's values are completed by the chapter. This program helps create strong and vibrant chapters and individuals.
Standards Board is our judicial program developed to focus on risk reduction through education and member engagement through positive reinforcement. Training for members includes topics such as confidentiality, identifying underlying problems, constructive sanctions, positive recognition and policy education.
