Delta Phi Epsilon is the first and only Panhellenic Organization to have a transgender and non-binary inclusion policy. Everyone is welcome in Delta Phi Epsilon. Every single member is valued, loved, and given every opportunity to learn and grow as a leader.
Delta Phi Epsilon was founded by five women in 1917 during a time when inclusivity and diversity were lacking. Therefore, they formed Delta Phi Epsilon with the purpose of accepting all races and religions. Dela Phi Epsilon was one of the first non-sectarian, social sororities to do so.
At Carleton University, we recognize our positionality and are constantly working towards equality within our organization, the university environment, the Ottawa community, and beyond. Our membership is based entirely on personal values because we see you for who you are. We will make every effort to ensure you feel welcome, seen, and heard as a member of Delta Phi Epsilon.
Our Chapter's Commitment to Inclusivity
Advocacy and Action
Our Committment to Indigenous Advocacy
Alexandra Tassoni represented our Chapter and our values internationally in Florida. Our chapter advocated for land acknowledgments at the beginning of every event and addressing inequalities impacting Indigenous populations as one of our priorities.
As one of two Canadian Delta Phi Epsilon Chapters, it is our duty to be advocates for the people living on this land, especially for those who have been, and continue to be, negatively impacted by systems of power and oppression resulting from the colonial legacies and settler presence.
