meet a higher standard & helps you uphold
your values, unconditionally, forever.
a perpetual bond
Our Founders envisioned a women’s fraternity that would inspire the ideals of truth, self-sacrifice and friendship. Tri Delta’s Purpose keeps those values alive with our members today.
Whether serving as officers or participating in a chapter’s educational programming, our members are offered the support and opportunity to grow as leaders. There are four areas of growth that Tri Delta’s leadership education focuses on: organizational growth, intrapersonal growth, interpersonal growth and professional growth. Throughout the collegiate experience, Tri Delta’s members will attain core competencies and skill development in each of these areas.
As part of the collegiate chapter experience, Tri Delta members will participate in multi-dimensional – “3D” – educational and leadership programs designed to inspire them to Live, Learn and Lead in accordance with Tri Delta’s Purpose. Over the course of the collegiate experience, Tri Deltas enjoy a host of opportunities for personal growth and development while building lifelong friendships.
Tri Delta understands that its members are college women first, and part of Tri Delta’s Purpose is to broaden the moral and intellectual lives of members. Whether by providing scholarship funds through the Foundation to assist with educational costs, or by promoting academic success through a chapter’s Academic Excellence Initiative, Tri Delta offers encouragement and support to collegiate members as they pursue academic achievement.
Members of Tri Delta have a long history of supporting children’s cancer charities at the local level with local children’s hospitals and at the national level with our philanthropic partner, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The Fraternity and its chapters also consistently provide opportunities to raise funds to support the Tri Delta Foundation. This emphasis on philanthropy and service allows our members to develop qualities of unselfish leadership and assume the highest responsibilities of college women.
We live in a society where women have access to so many opportunities for education, empowerment, leadership and success. Yet, in the pursuit of happiness, women of all ages can feel pressured to achieve a certain standard of female beauty. In 2012, Tri Delta launched BodyImage3D®, a multi-dimensional approach to body image awareness and education. This initiative encourages a more well-rounded, in-depth body image by focusing on three key components: healthy mind, healthy body and healthy spirit.
Tri Delta’s membership is made up of women who have different experiences and backgrounds but who all share a common bond through upholding our ideals of truth, self-sacrifice and friendship. This connection provides members with meaningful and lasting friendships and support through all of life’s major transitions. Although sisterhood looks different in every chapter, and each member has her own unique perception, it is one of the most rewarding aspects of membership.
