Delta Kappa Epsilon


Founded in 1844 at Yale University, Delta Kappa Epsilon is one of the oldest and most prominent fraternities in the U.S. “Deke” is known for producing outstanding gentleman, leaders, and jolly good fellows. DKE has enriched the lives of students by teaching the importance of learning, leadership, and community service. We aspire to be a highly respected fraternity, focused on excellent chapter performance, populated with men of distinction whose behavior is exemplary in all respects and who go on to become leaders in their chosen fields of endeavor. Our policies and educational programs challenge members to be better men, to embrace the values of diversity and inclusion, and to create safe environments where all members are heard and where the social and physical wellbeing of all individuals are protected. DKE is more than just a place to live while an undergraduate. Our members, from the day they join DKE, are afforded the opportunity to form lifelong friendships, grow as a person through fraternal and collegiate experiences, and graduate ready to find success in all facets of life.
