Strategic Priorities Header


On August 12, 2016, Delta Sigma Pi approved new strategic priorities to lead the Fraternity to greater excellence over the next five years. Learn more about helping us reach our goals and share your successes by using #DSPHigherStandard on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Member Education
Equip members to excel as ethical leaders on campus and in the community.

Educating members to stand out as effective leaders on campus and beyond starts with recruitment and pledging, but also includes training for collegiate, alumni, faculty, and volunteers. Education should include Ritual, core values, policies, and procedure, but also training in the skills needed for academic, career and life success.

Goals
  1. Provide leadership development training for collegiate and alumni chapter officers, with at least 90% of chapters participating annually. 
  2. Provide leadership development training for District Directors, with at least 90% of chapters served by a trained District Director annually.
       
Membership Growth
Attract and retain diverse students and community leaders.

We prioritize diverse growth to ensure unique perspectives and opportunities locally, nationally, and around the world. Increasing active membership in local chapters lightens the workload and enhances member experience, while at the national level more active and visible chapters enhances brand recognition and opens doors with communities and corporations. Each Deltasig is an ambassador for the Fraternity both in positive and negative conduct, and can impact Delta Sigma Pi's future by making the Fraternity experience highly valued by diverse business students, faculty members, community organizations, and businesses.

Goals

  1. Expand to at least 250 active campuses.
  2. Ensure at least 90% of collegiate chapters have at least 30 active members.

Member Engagement
Provide members with meaningful involvement opportunities at every stage of life.

Lifelong member engagement encompasses collegiate and alumni activities, but also how brothers at any stage can interact positively for greater impact. Making on-campus recruitment, member education, and conflict resolution processes more effective can reduce expulsions and voluntary withdrawals. However, enhancing the alumni experience could prove even more effective for collegiate member retention, as well as better serving our alumni worldwide. This involves developing a deeper understanding of how and why alumni are and want to participate, and better aligning alumni activities with varied interests and experiences- especially offering opportunities that don't require daunting time, financial, or travel commitments.

Goals

  1. Engage 20,000 alumni annually as volunteers, donors, national event participants, or supporters of chapter or national activities.
  2. Cut collegiate member attrition rate by at least 50%.

 
Organizational Excellence
Strengthen infrastructure to support priorities. 

Evaluating our infrastructure- including laws, staffing, partnerships, technology, and the volunteer program- in light of Delta Sigma Pi's goals may require some organizational changes to maximize outcomes.

Goals

  1. Enhance Fraternity/Leadership Foundation relationship and Foundation staff support model.
  2. Enhance Fraternity organizational structure and staff support model.
