Diversity, Equity, And Inclusion

Tri Delta is committed to being brave, bold, and kind to all individuals and creating an inclusive and equitable community within our chapters. Tri Delta’s national office has established a specific action plan for how we will do that at the national level, but our chapter here at Stephen F. Austin State University, Beta Xi, has also begun some of our initiatives to help educate our members and equip them to be advocates and allies in their communities.

             Delta Iota has always provided programming and educational resources to our members, but we have recently diversified our library and established specific, tangible initiatives to allow us to hold each other accountable and keep each other focused on the task at hand. The work is never done when it comes to fighting systemic racism and dismantling stereotypes, biases, and injustices.

Here’s what we’ve been up too:

Updated Legacy Policy

             Beta Xi has updated our chapter policies in regards to Legacy status. We want to ensure that all Potential New Members are treated equally. Legacies, as defined in our policies, will no longer be favored during Recruitment efforts.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee

             We have established a Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Chair, as well as a committee of members of all pledge classes. This committee will be focused on putting on educational programming and providing educational resources for members to access.
