"To promote good fellowship among the women students among the various colleges in the country...to create a secret society composed of these women based upon their good moral character, regardless of nationality or creed..."
Attending law school when you don’t have basic voting rights is a bold move. Our Founders were bold, courageous students who challenged the status quo and did not let society define their future. They were forward-thinking women who saw beyond what sorority was and knew what it could be.
On March 17, 1917, these five bold women attending New York University School of Law could not find a membership accepting of all backgrounds. So they formed Delta Phi Epsilon with the purpose of accepting all races and religions–one of the first non-sectarian, social sororities to do so.
Today, Delta Phi Epsilon heads into our Centennial year. Since our founding nearly 100 years ago, we have grown into a thriving organization with over 67,000 initiated members and chapters located across the United States and Canada. Sisters find more than a home or friendship in DPhiE.
We find empowerment to live authentic and purposeful lives.
We began as Psi Delta Phi and we were nationally founded at St. Cloud State University on February 7th, 1983. Our big brothers at St. Cloud State is Acacia. We pride our selves on diversity. We strive for academic excellence, civic engagement, and positive self worth!
The mission of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority is to develop in women a social consciousness and a commitment to think and act for the greater good. We assure continuous development and achievement for women through individual attention and smart strategic growth. We pride ourselves in diversity, sisterhood, and academics.
