Bring Delta Phi Lambda to Your Campus

We are committed to providing a positive Greek experience for college women and are located on several campuses nationally. We are dedicated to ongoing sorority growth and development and are excited to learn more about opportunities at other campus’ and welcome preliminary conversations with any interested parties. Below you will find a step-by-step process in starting a chapter of Everlasting Sisterhood at your university.

HOW TO START A COLLEGIATE CHAPTER

Delta Phi Lambda offers interested college women an opportunity to charter a Collegiate Chapter through the Collegiate Chapter Expansion Process (CCEP). You will work closely with the VP Expansion to become an official Interest Group (IG) and complete the expansion requirements.

STEP ONE:

CONTACT US

Contact our Interest Group Manager if you are interested in being part of an Interest Group at your campus.

Interest Group Manager
interestgroups@deltaphilambda.org

 

STEP TWO:

CREATE INTEREST GROUP AND APPLICATION

Interested women will work with the Expansion Team to recruit more women. If at least 7 interested and qualified women have expressed interest within a short amount of time, a formal Interest Group will be formed at your university. After the Greek Office on your campus has approved you to charter Delta Phi Lambda on your campus, you will submit an individual and Interest Group application to our Director of Expansion.

STEP THREE:

EVALUATIONS

We will review applications and conduct interviews with each individual within the Interest Group in order to get know you and the Interest Group better.

STEP FOUR:

BID DISCUSSIONS

We will decide collectively who we will extended a bid, or invitation, to start the Charter Member Education process with us. Chosen women will have demonstrated shared values and standards of philanthropic passions, good character, financial responsibility, and leadership ability among others.

Grade Check
Before we give out a formal invitation to start the new member education process, we will double check your grades. No one interested in joining Delta Phi Lambda, will be given an invitation to join the sorority unless their cumulative GPA is above 2.7. There are no exceptions.

STEP FIVE:

COMPLETE NEW MEMBER EDUCATION PROCESS

Selected women will then be given the opportunity to participate in our Charter Member Education Process, which lasts between 6 to 8 weeks.

The purpose of this process is to help familiarize you with our history, traditions, values and prepare you to be a contributing member to the sorority. At the end of the process, you will be formally initiated into the sorority as a lifelong sister and a chartering member of your universities chapter.
