Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Since our founding in 1890, advancing justice has been a core value and expectation of membership in Delta Chi. In an effort to support the experience and development of our members and to better align our actions with our values and Ritual, the Fraternity established a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) work group.
This work group has reviewed current Delta Chi Law and resolutions, facets of the member experience, and our existing educational programming and resources related to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
The initial recommendations for action items that could positively impact the experiences of our members while being a catalyst for positive change in our communities included the creation of a DEI Steering Committee. The goal of this Steering Committee is to assist Delta Chi in identifying priorities and recommendations on Delta Chi policy, education, support and other initiatives surrounding our DEI efforts. This includes opportunities for support at the individual, local, regional, and international level.
While we are excited to see the work of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Steering Committee, Delta Chi is not waiting to take action. We continue to develop resources and educational materials for our members, including a position description for a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion chair, sharing content through social media, and online education through our learning management system. The International Headquarters staff is committed to continuing this work. We will collaborate with the steering committee, our members, and campus partners to foster accountability and action in the pursuit of creating a more equitable Delta Chi for all.

Delta Chi’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Steering Committee will assist Delta Chi in identifying priorities and recommendations on Delta Chi policy, education, support and other initiatives surrounding our DEI efforts.
This member-driven effort includes opportunities for support at the individual, local, regional, and international level.
We are grateful for the contributions of our collegiate members, alumni, and friends of the Fraternity who are sharing their time and talents to help Delta Chi continue to create positive, welcoming, values based experiences for all our members.
