About Delta Sigma Phi

For more than a century, Delta Sigma Phi has helped young men become better leaders and better citizens. Brotherhood is a lifetime commitment to living our core values: Culture, Harmony, and Friendship. Our intention is not merely to develop a strong fraternity, but in addition, to challenge our members to make a difference in their communities and their world.

It is this legacy and commitment that led to the development of the Fraternity's Strategic Plan, Delta Sig's bold vision for the future of the fraternity and its impact on the world. This plan, which was unveiled in 2007, consists of initiatives that will insure Delta Sigma Phi will become America’s Leading Fraternity in:

  • Leadership Training…by training the highest percentage of chapter members each year compared to other national fraternities.
  • Academic Excellence…by attaining a GPA in the Top 5 compared to all other national fraternities.
  • Undergraduate Membership…by increasing average chapter size to reach Top 5 of all national fraternities.
  • Alumni Involvement…by engaging 2500+ alumni in the Fraternity in a meaningful way.

Through each of these initiatives, Delta Sigma Phi is Building Better Students. Better Leaders. Better Citizens. Better Professionals. Better Men. We hope you will continue throughout the remainder of the site to find out more about the Fraternity and its efforts to Build Better Men.
