IOWA CITY, Iowa – The Delta Chi Fraternity is pleased to announce its chapter & colony Core Competency Award recipients for the 2017-2018 academic year.
It is the Fraternity’s goal to recognize and promote the achievements of our chapters, colonies, alumni, and advisors on a chapter, colony, regional, and international level. The awards and recognition program allows chapters and colonies the opportunity to showcase their outstanding or improved performance over the past academic year in each of the Fraternity’s core competencies.
To be eligible for awards, chapters or colonies must be current on all bills to the Fraternity as of June 1 and (to be considered for composite awards) must not be on any level of risk management sanction during the year of awards consideration.
Once all applications are received, the Fraternity staff objectively evaluates each and every application before recognizing the efforts of our chapters and colonies based upon Delta Chi’s eight core competencies for success: Advising and Governance, Alumni Relations, Financial Management, Housing, Involvement, Manpower, Membership Education, and Scholarship.
There are two categories of awards given for each core competency. The Excellence category denotes a complete mastery of that competency; winners in this category fulfill the many components of each area and often go above and beyond to reach new heights of operations. The Achievement category recognizes chapters and colonies that have made significant improvements in this area of operations.
ADVISING & GOVERNANCE
Advising & Governance awards chapters and colonies that excel in the areas of Alumni Board of Trustees, “BB” Involvement, Faculty Advisor, by-laws, judicial board, and business meetings. The soundness of the chapter or colony’s operational procedures are an important part of the selection process.
