Mission Statement

DKE strives to develop a culture and an expectation of​ undergraduate​ chapters who perform in the top tier of fraternities at their institutions​;​ and a vibrant network of ​alumni who are motivated to stay involved with the fraternity after graduation.

We will do this by providing our undergraduates with the leadership​ skills, and the operational resources they need, to excel in today’s Greek environment; and by developing alumni networking programs which are relevant and engaging, and are beneficial to both alumni and undergraduates.

Vision Statement

To be a highly respected fraternity, located at premier institutions, focused on excellent chapter performance, populated with men of distinction whose behavior is exemplary in all respects, who go on to become leaders in their chosen fields of endeavor, and who personify the motto created by our Founding Fathers, “Gentlemen, Scholars, and Jolly Good-Fellows.”
