Most Improved Collegiate Chapter Award

South Dakota Alpha Eta

Each year, the Delta Sigma Pi collegiate chapter that exhibits the greatest degree of improvement in its general operations, professional programs, and membership support compared to the previous year is awarded the Most Improved Collegiate Chapter Award. In addition to a national winner, the Fraternity also recognizes regional and provincial recipients of this award.

Chapters receiving the award are recognized at Grand Chapter Congress or a fall LEAD School and in The DELTASIG. Winning chapters also receive a certificate commemorating their selection.
