Guiding Philosophy

Delta Kappa Epsilon has built itself on the ideals of self-governance, transformational leadership experiences, and the advancement and encouragement of intellectual excellence. To best achieve those aims, the International Fraternity facilitates opportunities for our members to develop their leadership skills, learn from notable alumni, and work to develop their competencies as members of DKE throughout life. 

Delta Kappa Epsilon’s educational ambition is to transform members’ lives and enhance the ability of the international organization to be a learning organization where development is encouraged, the curriculum is fluid, and there is a focus on assessment and best practices within the Interfraternal World.

Using a combination of in-person events, staff organization visits, and online course offerings, Delta Kappa Epsilon aims to provide content to support members in the following areas:

  • The History, Values, Vision, and Objects of Delta Kappa Epsilon
  • Value-Based authentic leadership skills
  • Mentorship and networking for intergenerational connection of alumni and collegiate members
  • Relevant health & safety education and intervention strategies based in prevention and research-informed to address sexual misconduct, hazing, mental health and substance misuse on college campuses
