You can help

Your alumni donations fund leadership conferences for the undergrads to develop leadership skills.

Attendance at leadership conferences:

  • DKE International conference
  • Interfraternity Institute (UIFI)
  • Northeast Greek Leadership Association (NGLA)

Participating in these events meet specific COMPASS requirements. If you would like to fund one of these initiatives, please contact the Treasurer, Peter Carlson, for more information.

Alumni Involvement is Essential

The DKE Speaker’s Bureau is another initiative we’ve launched where undergrads invite alumni back to the house to speak. See that page for more information or to volunteer.

The brothers enjoy welcoming alumni to come back to campus to share their life experiences. If you’re going to be on campus for another event, this is a great way to connect with the current members. Simply notify the undergrads via e-mail at or call the DKE House phone line at 610.330.4557.
