Leadership & Strategic Initiatives

 

Alumnae Leadership Academy
The Alumnae Leadership Academy (ALA) is a program where local alumnae associations self-identity, nominate and fund their own members to attend a weekend of elevated leadership skills training. Only members of alumnae associations are eligible to participate.

Your Gift Impact
Attendees of the ALA build next-level leadership skills to bring back to help carry their association to new heights. Sisters who complete the ALA are eligible to work on Board committees and potentially be Board members later in life, helping perpetuate our culture of leadership and growth.

Team Excellence
Team Excellence invites every chapter member to take part in the operations of their chapter. This level of engagement stimulates leadership and management skills and increases involvement, commitment, and chapter participation by each member. By emphasizing self-governance, Team Excellence affords members the opportunity to engage in the decision-making process, share in the responsibilities of those decisions and the rewards from them. While a value to the entire chapter, Team Excellence helps sisters develop transferrable skills, which are important elements in building professional resumes for a competitive job market. Team Excellence continues to challenge and engage our members to advance the vision of our founders in continuing to inspire and empower our sisterhood to engage in a lifetime of leadership and service.

LaunchPoint Learning
Delta Phi Epsilon has collaborated with LaunchPoint, a fraternity and sorority leadership consulting company, to create a full online educational library of lessons for undergraduates and alumnae members. This online library, hosted on LaunchPoint’s Learning Management System (LMS), offers interactive and engaging programs for Team Excellence officer development, Chapter Advisory Board training, mental health education, New Member Orientation and much more.

By moving to an online learning system, we are able to reach and educate our members with information at their fingertips from the comfort of their home or favorite coffee shop. In addition to the online learning component, in-person and print materials have been developed to supplement the virtual learning experience.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiative
Delta Phi Epsilon continues to be a leader in multicultural and social inclusivity. The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force, a group of Delta Phi Epsilon alumnae, was formed in the summer of 2018. This group of dedicated alumnae was tasked to provide recommendations to the International Governing Board to enhance the member experience through the development of educational programming, the review and update of current policies, a focus on advocacy and membership assessment. The overarching goal of these initiatives is to provide our members with experiences that enrich their lives and develop their communities.

Dyad Strategies Partnership
Dyad Strategies help organizations and universities measure and improve the impact of their work. Our multi-year partnership will provide DPhiE the ability to gather information in a longitudinal form. This will highlight the strengths and weaknesses of the organization so that it may better serve its members. Additionally, the data from this initiative will provide Delta Phi Epsilon quantifiable evidence of the impact areas the organization and its members have in society.
