Membership Development

Phi Gamma Delta prides itself on developing college men into productive leaders. The chapter environment has proven to be a real-life teaching ground for many of today's leaders. (See Famous Fijis.) 

Additionally, research on membership in Greek organizations reveals many other positive outcomes:

  • Higher graduation rate
  • Greater campus involvement and engagement
  • A more positive view of the college experience
  • Greater financial support to alma mater
  • Greater personal development
  • To increase the likelihood that our members will enjoy these benefits, Phi Gamma Delta offers many formal and informal opportunities for our members to develop their mind, body, and spirit.


Through programming we inform and seek to influence our members on a personal and social level to curb the effects of high-risk alcohol use. Our commitment to alcohol-free housing, alcohol education, and risk management makes Phi Gamma Delta a leader in promoting healthy decisions.


Phi Gamma Delta promotes the pursuit of knowledge, believing that it is the key to a fuller, richer life. Phi Gamma Delta offers academic support services to our chapters, and the Phi Gamma Delta Educational Foundation awards thousands of dollars through scholarships and fellowships.


The Fraternity provides members with leadership development opportunities on every level — on a daily basis through involvement in chapter operations, through training programs created in collaboration with Ken Blanchard (Cornell 1961), and at regional and international meetings and conventions.


Phi Gamma Delta encourages service by all our members. We have the ability, the opportunity, and the duty to serve our fellow human beings. Our chapters contribute thousands of hours and dollars to charities across North America and to our primary charities, the USO and Red Cross.
