Support the Delta Omicron Chapter of Tri Delta @ Indiana University

This petition had 5,667 supporters


We are deeply saddened by the Tri Delta Executive Board’s decision to withdraw the charter of the Delta Omicron Chapter at Indiana University.  On behalf of the very proud alumnae of the Delta Omicron chapter, we were surprised to learn that the Executive Board took such an aggressive and swift step against a chapter that dates back more than 100 years on Indiana University’s campus. With this petition, we hope to show support for our current Delta Omicron members and ask that the Executive Board reconsider their decision.

The Delta Omicron chapter has a rich history of diversity, sisterhood, philanthropy and community and University support.  It is the reason for lifelong relationships among its members and is a pillar of the Indiana University campus. In fact, upon learning of the chapter revocation, within 24-hours, a group of more than six-hundred women have come together in the hopes of imploring the National Organization to reconsider their decision.  There is an unwavering commitment among the alumnae, both locally and from around the country, to support our active members in any way that may be appropriate to cure any wrongdoings and/or misjudgments of the active members.  As fellow Tri-Deltas, we would like to think you would be proud of how so many alumnae have jumped at the opportunity to help our youngest sisters and preserve our very precious chapter.

While we do not have all the facts that led to the decision to disband the Delta Omicron chapter, it is our understanding that the punishment and disruptive actions taken against these girls’ education does not match their infractions.  Tri Delta is founded on a strong set of values of sisterhood and support, and we hope the National Organization will employ these standards to support our sisters that are currently at Indiana University. 

Most of us credit Tri Delta with our first leadership role, the birthplace of lifelong friendships (bridesmaids, god-parents to our children, best friends), and a jumping-off point to our future career as a lawyer, a doctor, an executive, a mother, a scientist, a therapist, a teacher . . . the list goes on.  The Delta Omicron alumnae body is strong, diverse and ready to help however we possibly can.  Again, with this petition we hope to show support for our current Delta Omicron members. We ask that the Executive Board reconsider their decision and let us be involved with supporting our sisters.
