These three principles define our organizations' character, membership, and dedication to achieving and promoting success. Our "Diligent and Elite" Delta Eta Chapter encompasses these principles and remind ourselves the importance of each one. Since our establishment at the University of Idaho in Spring 2006, we have created traditions and great bonds with one another and work collectively in order to pursue the vision of our organization.
At the University of Idaho, our chapter has continued this legacy through the support of various resources on and off campus. As an active organization, our chapter has developed a high standard of commitment and dedication to our community and our campus. We are active in the majority of recruitment activities sponsored through the University, we participate in numerous and a range of community service events sponsored through our Volunteer Center, and are actively involved all social, political and cultural awareness programs. We have adopted "Women's Issues" as our chapter philanthropy and work closely with our Women's Center on campus. Our chapter has been recognized with numerous awards acknowledging our commitment to success. Our most precious award was given to our chapter by our National Board of Directors as the New Chapter of the Year in 2007. Individual members have also received other awards due to their work and dedication both inside and outside of our organization. We take great pride in all the efforts on behalf of our members.
