Message from

the President


ear Sisters,

Welcome to a new academic year! As we go through the remaining months of 2019, many of us spend time in reflection. I am no different. It was amazing to sit and think about the progress we have made at Delta Phi Epsilon. Adding new chapters at Union College and Farmingdale College in New York, instituting the new Diversity and Inclusion Task Force and welcoming hundreds of new members to DPhiE in the 2018-2019 academic year, and the success of our revitalized International Leadership Consultant Program, top my list of proud accomplishments. These successes come at a crucial time because we need more empowered women. The call for more advocacy for women’s issues is getting louder. We, at DPhiE are shaping our messages and preparing to educate our members on how to get more involved in the fight. There is much to do and much to come. We need you to join us to make it all happen. Our accomplishments and growth are due to the hard work of staff and alumnae volunteers. This edition of TRIAD dedicates a lot of space to the evolution of our volunteer positions. Our volunteers continue to grow in numbers and become more influential year-after-year. The important contributions of our chapter advisory boards (CAB) cannot be overstated. In this issue, we dive into the work these amazing volunteers are doing to mentor and provide opportunities for growth to our collegiate membership. Women who volunteer as advisors now, more than ever, have more training and engagement tools to help them succeed. You will learn about DPhiE’s new self-assessment tools and digital training platforms in the article that details the evolution of the advisor’s role. If you are currently serving DPhiE as a CAB member across North America, please keep up-to-date on policies and procedures. These updates are critical to the success of those collegians with whom you work. As we usher in the fall semester, I am excited to welcome our second cohort of International Leadership Consultants, who will undoubtedly build upon the work of their predecessors to make our chapters stronger. I am also excited to share that the University of Tampa has invited our sisterhood to return to this fall, something we have been working toward for nearly a decade. We have so much success to celebrate and even more on the horizon. I look forward to a fruitful 2019-2020 year, filled with moments that epitomize our values of Justice, Sisterhood and Love.

Yours in True Sisterhood,

Stacy Segal

International President

Right Beside You:

The Ever Evolving Role of the Chapter Advisor In the summer of 1953, Delta Phi Epsilon’s Executive Council placed their first call out for chapter advisors. The ad read, “Cognizant of the fact that the strength and success of the chapters in our roster exist because of the expert leadership, our present undergraduates though equally as capable, fully as imaginative and every bit as typical a DPhiE as you all were, realize the ‘big sister,’ ‘little sister’ relationship has proven too successful to ignore after graduation.” It went on to ask for three-to-five volunteers for every active chapter, with a lead who would report to a regional director. International officers were concerned with the growing membership, expansion and new acceptance to the NPC, while chapter members needed to focus on recruitment efforts, philanthropy and building the bonds of sisterhood. Meanwhile, the growing number of alumnae members in the 1950s had few, if any, volunteer opportunities. The advisor role seemed like the perfect solution. Now women could venture back to their chapter meetings, attend sorority teas and support at recruitment with a real purpose.

Chapter Advisors –

Energizing Our Sisterhood

Jan Mays began her sisterhood journey with the Rho Chapter at the University of Illinois. However, it was just one of three chapters that she would call her own. Mays transferred schools before her initiation. When she followed her future husband, Francis, to the University of Pennsylvania, the Nu Chapter initiated. After graduation, the couple moved to Illinois where she began working with the Phi Sigma Chapter at Northern Illinois University. On paper she was an advisor. To all who knew her or worked with the Phi Sigma Chapter, Mays was so much more. When Phi Sigma’s sorority decided to build a house, the chapter dedicated the entire building to Mays, who had passed away two years earlier.


TRIAD Fall 2019

Right Beside You: The Ever Evolving Role of the Chapter Advisor The first few decades, advisors were exactly what the ad asked for – friends. They chipped in where they could, and played a less defined role in the management of the chapter. They were the chapter cookie baker when the housed women needed a host; they became cheerleaders of their dreams and a confidants. However, that dynamic quickly shifted. Delta Phi Epsilon’s chapters had to rise to meet the world’s challenges, and with that, the role of the advisor evolved. No longer was the advisor in the kitchen making cookies, but rather at the table negotiating building leases and ensuring the vitality of our organization. It was a new era of advising fierce mentors came into play. Advisors started to possess veracity, legitimacy and integrity. Advisors rose to the challenge, advisors like Jan Mays.

From right to left: Suzanne Valliere, Kris Krueger, Jan Mays, Karen Bott Dattilo, Kim Nelson, Christina Wendorf Coleman.

The 1970s saw a decrease of interest in women joining sororities, which led to increased financial strain. This is where Jan Mays’ story begins. Jan Mays began her sisterhood journey with the Rho chapter at the University of Illinois. However, it was just one of three chapters she would call her own. Mays transferred schools before her initiation and was initiated into the Nu chapter at the University of Pennsylvania. After graduation, Mays and her husband moved to Illinois where she became the chapter advisor for the Phi Sigma chapter at Northern Illinois University. On paper she was an advisor. To all who knew her, Mays was so much more. The chapter women needed a house to thrive and Jan worked tirelessly looking for land. She encouraged the women to take on leadership positions and instilled in them the belief that they must rise to the occasion no matter how small, ill equipped or unprepared they thought they were. Mays never saw the chapter house come to fruition, but the chapter women did. Two years after her death, the house was built and they dedicated the entire building to Mays.

Delta Phi Epsilon honors her biennially as the namesake for the Jan B Mays Award. This award is given to the chapter advisor who has shown outstanding commitment and support to an undergraduate chapter. As society evolves, so do the needs of our members and the ways that advisors provide support. In a world where our women can feel alone, chapter advisors continuously walk beside them fostering an inclusive environment for all. Perhaps, there is no better example than the current lead advisor at Northern Arizona University, Laura Bullock (Gamma Psi). NAU’s Greek community has been rattled the past few years with numerous suicides and deaths. When Laura became advisor, she understood the need for a mental health resource and did not want to wait on the sidelines to find one for the chapter. Laura has spent the last two years becoming certified in mental health and suicide prevention. Bullock walked

For myself as an individual, as well as for my role as an advisor it is so important to have all the training I can get about suicide prevention and mental health and I plan to continue to educate myself and share with our sisters as long as I am an advisor for this chapter.

alongside her chapter women in the 3rd Annual Walk for Waltman in conjunction with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Not only in the chapter growing under Bullock’s tutelage, but Bullock herself is growing and her ability to bring these issues to light are benefiting the chapter immensely.

Advisor Trainings

When asked why she has taken this step in educating herself, Bullock remarks, “I hope that health & wellness will continue to be a stronghold for our chapter women on this campus as well as others. There are serious issues facing our women - death, depression, anxiety, and thoughts of suicide that can become overwhelming. For myself as an individual, as well as for my role as an advisor it is so important to have all the training I can get about suicide prevention and mental health and I plan to continue to educate myself and share with our sisters as long as I am an advisor for this chapter.”

Alumnae Leadership Academy

As a part of better educating and preparing our advisors to vigorously support and advocate for our members, in fall 2019, IHQ will provide more depth to the role of advisors and offer more innovative trainings. First, each advisor will receive an overview of DPhiE’s global purpose, mission and vision through a comprehensive online training platform with videos and worksheets. Once advisors login to the site, they can take all the training modules and monitor their progress as they complete all the courses. The portal also allows advisors to form groups to hold discussions and they can check the calendar of advisor training and other related events. In addition, the online learning management system International Headquarters developed provides tools for self-assessment that includes report cards to help volunteers gauge their effectiveness as advisors. We must continue to support our advisors in new and innovative ways. Quietly, advisors are on the front line tackling issues that are well outside their job descriptions, and they are doing it in stride. As the organization continues to expand and become a major influence on college campuses internationally, advocates are needed to fiercely defend our women. For us to continue to be that spark of leadership, we look towards our alumna to energize that mission. Advisors truly are our boots on the ground and the lifeblood of the organization. 8

TRIAD Fall 2019

We listened to advisor feedback and are launching a new advisor training program. Video trainings were filmed in Arizona this summer and will be made available to you September 1. Trainings cover both functionality as a chapter advisory board as well as providing operational support to the chapter.

This fall, don’t miss a revamped Alumnae Leadership Academy at The College of New Jersey on November 2. Develop leadership skills, become an advocate, and network with other DPhiE advisors, alumnae association members, and aspiring leaders.

Chapter Advisory Board (CAB) Report Card Beginning with the 2019 – 2020 academic year, CABs will be self-evaluated in the areas of leadership, advising, communication, recruiting, motivating and engagement, to ensure all members of the chapter advisory board are reaching their full potential, maximizing their resources and given the same opportunities. The results will lead to an accreditation program and help determine additional trainings, achievements recognized and top priority placements.

New CAB Position Health and Wellness Advisor The health and wellness advisor will oversee the overall health of the chapter in relation to the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. This includes, but is not limited to: substance abuse, mental illness, life-long healthy practices, women’s health, physical fitness, sexual health and sexual assault prevention. No Health and Wellness advisor is meant to be the expert, however they will be the point of contact in helping the chapter members identify educational opportunities and institutional resources.

Delta Phi Epsilon’s Brand Refresh

New Graphic Elements

PA N TO N E 2 6 8

Our motto Esse Quam Videri; to be rather than to seem to be, has summoned DPhiEs to make an impact across the globe and inspire meaningful change. Now, into our second century as a sisterhood, there are new opportunities and new challenges ahead. As Delta Phi Epsilon continues to grow, we recognize the importance of distinguishing ourselves with an identifiable cohesive brand image. That’s why, at the end of 2018 we redefined our visual brand and image to reflect the values of Delta Phi Epsilon in a way that more broadly speaks to potential new members, their parents, as well as, our philanthropic partners. The new brand represents the future of the organization.

PA N TO N E 8 7 1

Royal Purple is the primary color of Delta Phi Epsilon. The color is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, and creativity. Gold is the primary accent color of Delta Phi Epsilon. It is commonly associated with success, achievement and triumph.

Our new brand also aligns with the goals of our international executives director and the international Governing Board’s strategic initiatives. As the organization focuses more on advocacy, women’s rights, and diversity, equity and inclusion we refined our identity and refreshed our logo, images and fonts. These visual markers help radiate our value to the outside world. These brand refinements illustrate the standards by which our sisterhood leads both formally and informally, to achieve our principles of Justice, Sisterhood and Love.

A variety of patterns featuring DPhiE imagry are available. These patterns can appear in various colors in the brand color palette. Colors should be close in tint so contrast in the pattern is not severe.

Engage U is a regional operations training program that provides resources and workshops for members and volunteers. Different chapters across the country host the one-day event each semester. The locations change each academic semester to ensure that all members can experience Engage U. Programming for Engage U includes intense interactive sessions where sisters challenge themselves and learn to improve the operations and membership experience within their chapters. Sessions are offered in various tracks. Registration is open to all active undergraduate and alumnae sisters, with programming available for emerging leaders, chapter officers and current or interested volunteers.


Stand Up for Freedom Stand Up for Sisterhood Stand Up to Harvard If you follow DPhiE’s social media accounts, you may have seen posts titled “Stand Up to Harvard.” These posts represented our support to the sororities, fraternities and students that filed lawsuits challenging Harvard University’s sanctions policy that punishes students who join off-campus, single-sex social organizations. The lawsuit describe how Harvard used a campaign of threats and intimidation to scare students into abandoning their fundamental rights to free association and to live free of sex discrimination. Harvard incited consequences for being a member of a single-gender social group including students’ inability to hold leadership positions in campus organizations and on athletic teams. Additionally, Harvard will no longer endorse those students for prestigious fellowships like the Rhodes and Marshall Scholarships. In essence, a ban on participation. In December, 2018, three sororities and one fraternity filed a federal lawsuit calling for a halt to the ban, sighting it constitutes a violation of the students’ First Amendment rights, as well as, infringes on the protections established by Title IX. Supporting the organizations’ efforts are the National Panhellenic Council, the North American Interfraternity Conference and the Cambridge Coalition. As a result of Harvard’s action, women’s organizations have felt a devastating effect. Almost all of the allwomen’s sororities and final clubs at Harvard have either 12

closed or had to renounce their proud status as women’s groups and commit to admitting men. “Delta Phi Epsilon stands in solidarity with our Panhellenic community. If left unchallenged other universities could enact similar measures and thereby pose an existential threat to sororities and same sex organizations like ours,” said DPhiE’s International Executive Director Nicole DeFeo. A statement released by the NPC warns of the detrimental effects this ban may have on sororities. “After membership soared to record highs in recent years, Harvard has erased our empowering women’s organizations designed to create opportunities, resources and sustainable networks built by women for women,” the organization stated. In an effort to advocate for the rights for members of single-gendered organizations, DPhiE’s members went to Capitol Hill to discuss Harvard’s actions while speaking to Congress during their visit in 2019. The issue of freedom of association remains important to the sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon. DeFeo commented that, “We simply cannot allow even one school to usurp our freedom to associate. Our Founders were part of a generation of women who knew what it was like to be silenced. They fought that fight for an inclusive organization that would empower women then and now. We must follow their example and continue to lead on this issue.”

Advocacy: A Time to Rise, Speak and Act Promoting the health, wellness and rights of all people is important to the values of Delta Phi Epsilon. As we enter an unpredictable time in society, it is more important than ever for our members to unite to protect and propagate the ideals our founders set for us of Justice, Sisterhood and Love! Through advocacy, the members of DPhiE can activate awareness to important issues that impact us all like equal rights for women, mental health, diversity and inclusion, freedom of association and sexual assault prevention.

Freedom of Association With the recent decision by Harvard University to bar students of single-gender social groups from holding any leadership positions on campus, it is clear that there is a growing reinterpretation of the freedoms the first amendment affords members of Greek organizations. In response, International Executive Director Nicole DeFeo and the International Headquarters executive team and the International Governing Board have been formulating positions and policies to combat troubling trends in campuses. In 2018, Delta Phi Epsilon gained a seat on the influential Fraternity and Sorority Political Action Committee. As a result, DPhiE is now better able to influence the dialog and decisions over our legislative

The spirit of our sisterhood is active in all of us, regardless of how it manifests itself. At this critical time in our history, we need to rise. We need to speak. We need to act.

Our organization will continue to cultivate a membership of change agents that bravely lead the way for change through impassioned advocacy.

Advocacy: A time to rise, speak and act. process as well as with college administrators. Also, Delta Phi Epsilon annually sponsors four undergraduate students and two alumnae members to represent the organization at the annual Fraternal Government Relations Coalition (FGRC) Congressional Visits. In 2019, the Congressional visits took place in Washington, D.C on Monday, April 8 – Wednesday, April 10. During the visits, student representatives advocated to protect the fraternity and sorority experience and students’ rights to freely associate with a single-sex organization. With an aligned board and a greater voice in legislative activities, DPhiE is ready to create more programming, education and messages that align our values towards the future that better guarantees women and minorities the full rights under the Constitution. “Our sisterhood has always been about effecting change. Our Founders gave us a road map and legacy to do so,” DeFeo said. “The spirit of our sisterhood is active in all of us, regardless of how it manifests itself. At this critical time in our history, we need to rise. We need to speak. We need to act.” We encourage all of our members to “Believe in Bravery” and speak up. Allow your voice to be heard by advocating for our sisterhood and the advancement of women and equality. From calling a congressional representative, to volunteering as an advisor or donating to DPhiE’s

Educational Foundation, every action gets an equal reaction.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Issues of diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) are so crucial to individual and societal well-being. Because of this, Delta Phi Epsilon is committed to increasing safe spaces to underserved populations in all facets of life. As such, on June 16, 2018 Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority hosted— and live streamed—a Diversity & Inclusion Summit do open a dialogue on how the organization can be a better advocate for inclusivity. The Diversity & Inclusion Summit was the first step in a larger initiative that DPhiE Leadership planned to execute our 2019-2021 strategic plan. Shortly after, DPhiE created a DE&I task force to review our bylaws and consider ways to eliminate any insensitive, exclusionary or discriminatory practices from the organization. The committee developed a Gender Nonbinary and Trans Women Inclusion Policy. The policy establishes an environment that is safe, welcoming and free from stigma and discrimination for all potential new members, sisters, volunteers and staff, regardless of sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Ultimately, the initiatives identified by the task force will continue to guide Delta Phi Epsilon’s vision for programming, development, and training.

2019 Educational Foundation

Scholarship Recipients

Last year, the foundation announced three new endowments established for helping sisters who may be experiencing difficulties, but are driven to succeed: Dr. Toby Tamarkin Scholarship Fund, Madeleine Claire McNulty Scholarship Fund and Arleen Kruger Honick Scholarship Fund. Toby Tamarkin, Ph.D., Sigma Chapter at The Ohio State University worked her way through college. Her focused dedication to her education while having to work a job led to a successful 33-year career as a teacher, professor and administrator. The scholarship in her name is awarded applicants who demonstrate that same perseverance. Madeleine Claire McNulty is the daughter of Dawn Barta McNulty, Phi Sigma Chapter at Northern Illinois University and past International President. A diligent student, passionate dancer and Special Olympics gold medalist, the younger McNulty embodied our founding values of Justice, Sisterhood and Love. Despite battling a lifelong seizure disorder, she embraced all of life’s moments her mother said. She inspired family, friends and classmates to “live like Madeleine.” Her scholarship fund awards scholars who have overcome a significant medical, personal or family difficulty. The Arleen Kruger Honick Scholarship was named after past International Persident Honick, Psi Chapter at the University of Georgia, who said had it not been for the sorority, she may have withdrawn from school. The now retired educator said DPhiE gave her the sense of belonging she needed to finish. To be eligible for a scholarship from this fund applicants must be a member in good standing of the Psi Chapter and carry a 3.0 GPA.
