Tri Delta is thrilled to launch our inaugural Collegiate Advisory Panel (CAP)! The CAP is a standing focus group, comprised of undergraduate members, who will serve as a liaison between the collegiate membership and the Fraternity-address topics facing college campuses today. The CAP will provide perspective and insight on relevant topics and serve as the voice of the undergraduate experience. After an application process, 12 extraordinary women were chosen to serve on the inaugural panel. Tri Delta looks forward to collaborating with these women to enhance the collegiate experience and honor our commitment to helping women live, learn and lead –with Purpose –for a lifetime.
