CONTACT US ABOUT YOUR INTEREST TO START A CHAPTER ON YOUR CAMPUS
We are so excited you are interested to bring Delta Phi Lambda® to your campus. Complete the form below to tell us more about yourself and why you are interested.
CREATE INTEREST GROUP
+ COMPLETE 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 interest group and individual applications to the Interest Group Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org.
INDIVIDUAL AND INTEREST GROUP EVAULTIONS
We will review applications and conduct interviews with each individual within the Interest Group in order to get know you and the group better.
+ GRADE CHECK
The Expansion Team will decide who we will extend 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.
Before we give out a formal invitation to start the 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 2.7 or higher. There are no exceptions.
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 yourself with our history, traditions, values, and prepare you to be a contributing member of 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 university's chapter.
