Volunteers are a valuable and important part of the DPhiE sisterhood and experience. We offer several levels and types of volunteer opportunities. We provide training to our volunteers.
Our Chapter Advisory Board (CAB) Volunteers play a vital role in the growth, development, and continued success of our undergraduate chapters. We have invested in our advisors through a dedicated staff member, the Director of Volunteer Services, the education that she provides, as well as the educational opportunities provided by our Leadership Education team.
We encourage anyone looking to volunteer with Delta Phi Epsilon to start with an advising role. It will help you to understand the organizational structure and the underlying purpose of the work that we do (supporting undergraduate chapters and individual student development/success)!
If you have been volunteering with DPhiE and are looking for a new opportunity, consider one of our committees.
Advisors provide guidance and mentorship to local members and leadership teams in several areas of operations. Our advisors serve as the direct line of support and communication between the collegiate members and IHQ. Positions available are:
Academic Affairs Advisor
Membership Development Advisor
House Management Advisor
Some volunteers support the operational work of the International Headquarters on Teams. Currently, we have a Risk Management Response Team, to support chapter education on risk management and investigate reports, as needed.
The boards of Delta Phi Epsilon use Task Forces to focus on a particular project on an as-needed basis. These temporary groups of volunteers solve a specific problem within a set timeframe for Delta Phi Epsilon.
Committees or standing committees are the ongoing working groups for Delta Phi Epsilon. These committees are chaired by a board member and set policy, philosophy and direction for the organization.
The enterprise of Delta Phi Epsilon has three boards. The International Governing Board is the highest level of leadership within DPhiE. The IGB oversees the strategic direction of the sorority. The Educational Foundation and National Housing Corporation each also have a Board of Directors that guide the work of those entities.
"Volunteering not only keeps me connected to our sisterhood, it also keeps me grounded. Knowing that our collective efforts have helped so many gives me the motivation to keep going."
"Volunteering as a chapter advisor has enhanced my sisterhood experience so much. It has allowed me to grow as a sister, leader, and woman. I am so honored to give back to Delta Phi Epsilon."
"It is a privilege to volunteer for Delta Phi Epsilon. I have been engaged for 16 years in a wide variety of volunteer capacities. Each experience and opportunity I have had to serve has reinforced that I joined an amazing, forward-thinking organization that serves not only its members but others."
