Delta Phi Epsilon is an enterprise consisting of three non-profit organizations working toward a mission to create a sisterhood experience rich with tradition, innovation, and opportunities for growth. Delta Phi Epsilon is constantly evolving and seeks to positively impact not only the lives of its more than 10,000 collegiate members and 55,000 alumnae members worldwide, but also the sorority experience, as a whole.
