Each of our chapters is guided by the wisdom of a Chapter Advisor. While many of our Advisors have been Brothers of Phi Delta Chi since their collegiate days, some Advisors are selected by the chapters and are initiated as graduate Brothers. The role of the Advisor is to provide guidance to the chapter and counsel in times of need, serve as an advocate of the chapter’s activities and facilitate positive change. Students come and go through the chapter but our Advisors are the stabilizing force of our chapters. To recognize the importance of the Advisor to the chapter and the Fraternity, the Outstanding Advisor Award was established in 1996. The criteria for this award is a written report by the chapter, detailing the advisor’s role in the chapter’s activities. The selection committee does not consider the faculty’s professional accomplishments, only the fraternal ones.
Specifically, the Advisor should:
Meet on a regular basis with the chapter’s leaders (officers and committee chairs).
When possible, attend the Formal or another meeting of the entire chapter on a monthly basis.
Be available to advise and counsel any Brother in need of such.
Serve as a point of contact for the National and Regional Officers with regard to the chapters.
Compliance with established Chapter Standards and Fraternity and college policies.
Serve in any other capacity mutually agreed upon by the Advisor and chapter.
