FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is recruitment?
The process used by Delta Sigma Pi to promote membership and invite business and economics students to scheduled meetings and activities so they may be considered for an invitation to membership.
What is a bid?
An invitation given to a prospective member inviting them to join the Fraternity via the pledge education process.
Are all of the recruitment events mandatory?
We understand students have busy schedules; however, it is highly encouraged for potential new members to attend all recruitment events. Although they are not mandatory, recruitment events provide students with the opportunity to meet active brothers and leave a lasting impression. Please note that the last recruitment event (interviews) is invite-only.
If I don’t get a bid, can I recruit again?
Yes, and we encourage it! You may be considered for a bid up to three times. We have plenty of brothers who were not offered a bid during their first recruitment. Sometimes individuals learn from the process and are able to better prepare for the next round of recruitment.
A STRONG COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY
Delta Sigma Pi's commitment to diversity is reflected in all levels of the organization. From national leadership to individual chapters, our collegiate members and alumni come from all different regions, backgrounds, and walks of life, and we celebrate the different viewpoints and insights our co-ed professional fraternity offers. Diversity is one more reason you'll be proud to be a Deltasig.
A Founding Ideal
Our founders formed Delta Sigma Pi intending to create a brotherhood as diverse as the business world the Fraternity would represent. At the time—more than one hundred years ago—other organizations actively discouraged diversity and operated on policies of exclusion. From the beginning, Delta Sigma Pi stood for something different. Our members have always valued the insight and ideas we gain from our brotherhood, and this founding ideal continues to play a major part in Delta Sigma Pi's values and mission.
America’s First Co-Ed Professional Business Fraternity
In 1975, Delta Sigma Pi became the first co-ed professional business fraternity in the United States. Our historical commitment to diversity made the movement toward gender equality in the business world a natural step for our organization, and we take our position of leadership seriously.
Diversity in Action
Our commitment to diversity is not merely a historical artifact—it's a living part of our organization. We welcome members who meet our professional standards regardless of race, ethnicity, creed, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status. Each of our members is valued and respected for the unique contribution he or she makes to the organization.
Our legacy of diversity makes us better business leaders and more compassionate members of society—it's one more reason our members are "proud to be a Deltasig."
