Delta Phi Epsilon
46th Annual MLK Leadership Award
Delta Phi Epsilon was founded on the principles of Justice, Sisterhood and Love. These principles, as well as the motto “to be rather than to seem to be,” built a foundation for the organization that DPhiE has become. Today, our sorority stays true to our founding. Members find more than a home or friendship in DPhiE; we find empowerment to live authentic and purposeful lives. Through pursuing membership in Delta Phi Epsilon, women have been able to become the leaders that they always dreamed of being. No matter what you aspire to be, DPhiE will give you the tools you need to get there as well as countless support from your sisters during your journey.
The MIT Zeta Delta chapter of Delta Phi Epsilon was chartered on December 14, 2015, making it the newest sorority on campus. The motto of DPhiE is “esse quam videri” which means “to be rather than to seem to be” and our 29 founders – though they had vastly different backgrounds – all identified with the mission of being true to yourself. Sisters of Delta Phi Epsilon strive to help each other become the best version of themselves that they can be. Since our founding, we have grown to over 60 members, and we are excited to watch our sisterhood continue to grow and flourish on MIT’s campus.
