In recognition of the hard work and dedication that our volunteers devote to Delta Chi, the following awards are available:
- Outstanding Chapter Advisor
- Meritorious Service Award (MSA)
- Richard N. McKaig Outstanding Greek Professional Award
- John J. Kuhn Award
The Outstanding Chapter Advisor award is designed to recognize an outstanding advisor for a chapter or colony for a specific, exceptional act of service during the previous academic year. The award will recognize individuals for their ability to strategically impact an undergraduate chapter or colony. A Faculty Advisor, “BB”, live-in advisor, ABT or Housing Corporation member.
A Meritorious Service Award (MSA) is given to an alumnus who makes significant contributions to Delta Chi as a “BB”, ABT member, House Corporation member, general Fraternity committee member, Regent, Vice-Regent, or staff member. Recipients must be a member of Delta Chi. Services rendered as an undergraduate do not qualify a member for this award. An alumnus who has received this award within the last five years is not eligible to be considered for it again in the same position. However, an alumnus who holds multiple positions in Delta Chi may be eligible for service in difference capacities. (i.e. Someone received an MSA in 2008 for service to the North/South Chapter could receive an award in 2009 for service to the East/West Colony, but could not receive an award to the North/South Chapter for five years).
The Richard N. McKaig Outstanding Greek Professional Award recognizes one student affairs professional each year for their exceptional service to the Greek Community. Nominees must be a student affairs professional who have given exceptional service to an institute. Recipients are typically campus-based professionals. Richard McKaig’s (Ball State ’66) devotion and commitment to the college Fraternity is acknowledged by all. A graduate of Ball State University and a loyal member of Delta Chi, Dick is known by his contemporaries as the “Fraternal Dean.” This award was renamed for him in 2009 to coincide with his retirement from Indiana University and to honor his exceptional service.
The John J. Kuhn Award is designed to recognize individuals who have dedicated their lives to the betterment of the fraternity community.
- It recognizes accomplishments and contributions of individuals within the fraternity and sorority world regardless of affiliation.
- Qualified candidates will have served the Fraternity/Sorority community at large.
- Involvement on national/international level preferred. For example: involvement with a Fraternity or Sorority HQ, AFA, speaker/researcher/trendsetter, Umbrella Organizations (NIC, NPHC).
The John J. Kuhn Award was created in 1992 by the Delta Chi Board of Regents to recognize individuals who have dedicated their lives to the betterment of the fraternity community. The award is one of the most prestigious awards that the Fraternity offers. The award is named after Delta Chi’s first North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) President, a past “AA” of the Fraternity, and dedicated contributor to the efforts and endeavors of the fraternity movement within and beyond Delta Chi.
