Our Values

What it means to be an Alpha Delt

Literary & Arts

To us, literature is more than books. It's art, STEM, and whatever you're passionate about.


Being a member of the Alpha Delta Phi Society goes beyond traditional notions of Greek Life.


We are a gender-inclusive society filled with a diverse group of leaders.

SamueleellsportraitThe Alpha Delta Phi Society is a gender-inclusive literary society dedicated to developing character, scholarship, and enduring friendships. Our mission is to bring together a diverse and supportive community, foster intellectual and personal growth, and cultivate passionate individuals of good character and integrity. As a living, breathing organization rooted in a tradition of shared values, we proudly redefine what it means to be a Greek-letter organization.

The Alpha Delta Phi Society, formed by a group of chapters that withdrew from the Alpha Delta Phi Fraternity in 1992, is an independent and legally separate gender-inclusive organization not affiliated with the Fraternity.

“[Alpha Delta Phi] must be built on a more comprehensive scale than other societies, in regard to its intellectual proportions; providing for every variety of taste and talent, and embracing every department of literature and science.”
—Samuel Eells, founder of Alpha Delta Phi, 1832
