Serve on a Committee

Committees, and the members within, are vital to fulfilling the mission and vision of Delta Phi Epsilon. By serving on committees, our volunteers shape the future of the sorority through developing policies and programs that foster a healthy and successful organization. We welcome and encourage unicorn activists from diverse backgrounds to get involved in causes and subjects that appeal to them.

Volunteering on a committee requires some experience and/or a special skill set that adds value to the work at hand. Commitments can range from a few hours a month to a few hours a week and from a few days to multiple years depending on the project. For more information, please contact Alexandra Waltemeyer, executive administrator at
