Our organization is comprised of three corporations, each with its own board of directors that follows a governance model of leadership. Together, they create the enterprise. These three boards work collaboratively with our staff to provide a meaningful exprience for our sisters. The boards oversee the Sorority, Educational Foundation, and National Development Corporation.
Our staff then carries out the strategic plan to allow our boards to work towards organizational growth and development, rather than day-to-day operations.

Delta Phi Epsilon is a member of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), a group that provides support and guidance for its 26-member national and international sororities, as well as women's fraternities. The NPC serves as the national voice on contemporary issues of sorority life. The NPC provides Delta Phi Epsilon a voice in the fraternal community. Each NPC member group is equally represented by a delegate who serves on the board of directors. There are also up to three alternate delegates. The delegate is the liaison between her organization, the NPC and all NPC member groups. In order to conduct business, the delegate body meets annually. The delegates function year round as members of specific NPC committees.
