Kappa Delta is committed to providing all members opportunities for growth and lifetime learning. Our member education includes quality programming on important topics.
Relevant member education begins soon after a new member accepts her bid. Members participate in member education workshops, which are held in conjunction with chapter meetings to keep from overtaxing already busy schedules. Chapter members complete educational sessions on Kappa Delta’s Ritual and heritage, academic excellence, risk management, leadership and community service.
Chapter leaders also develop workshops on the four PACE topics based on members' interests and needs of the chapter. These workshops often utilize outside speakers and campus resources.
- Personal Presence – focuses on body image, self-esteem, embracing differences and other related topics. The workshop highlights our commitment to building confidence in women.
- Attitude – centers on how an individual's attitude can impact her success in college, in relationships and in life.
- Communication – focuses on helping members develop effective communication skills, both written and verbal.
- Enlarging Our World – encourages members to expand their view of the world and learn more about global issues and people from diverse backgrounds.
Kappa Delta values leadership from our sisters, as leadership is such a critical skill to develop for the "real" world and such a rewarding experience. We encourage all sisters to pursue leadership positions in organizations they are involved in outside of Kappa Delta, or to take on one of the many leadership positions available within Kappa Delta, which vary widely in time commitment.
Kappa Delta is an active sorority socially as well. We organize events with fraternities and sororities of Dartmouth several times a week. We have weekly meetings every Wednesday night in which we plan fun events to give our sisters a chance to take a break from a busy academic schedule and relax with friends.
Kappa Delta will always encourage its sisters to explore personal development. Whether its academics, philanthropy, social involvement, or leadership, Kappa Delta's values will help sisters foster new relationships and perspectives. Getting to know a diverse group of girls on campus and building a strong sisterhood can be one of the most rewarding experiences you will have at Dartmouth.
