The mission of Delta Phi Epsilon Sorority is to develop in women a social consciousness and a commitment to think and act for the greater good. We assure continuous development and achievement for women through individual attention and smart strategic growth.
On March 17, 1917, five women at New York University Law School took a pledge of sisterhood and loyalty and so founded the Alpha Chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon, one of the first non-sectarian, social sororities and the only one founded at a professional school. Five years later on March 17, 1922, Delta Phi Epsilon was formally incorporated under laws of the State of New York.
The Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation, established in 1967, helps to give members and their children the opportunity to further their education through scholarships, grants, and loans. The foundation also supports sorority education and volunteer training. The Harriette Hirsch Sisterhood Fund helps give financial support to sisters during time of family financial crisis and allows them to continue their education.
