Applications for the 2017-2018 Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy are now open!
Our principles of scholarship and service, that we were founded on in 1913, still ring true today. This is evident in the projects that we undertake on a national level from the Women’s Suffrage Mach in 1913 to the civil rights marches of the 1960s; the College Tuition Loan Fund established in the 1920s to today’s Delta Research Education Foundation (DREF); our first Citizenship Seminar on Capitol Hill in 1953 to Delta Days at the Nation’s Capital where we’ve hosted over 800 sorors annually for the past 25 years.
Our service is performed through our 5 Point Programmatic Thrust:
- Economic Development
- Educational Development
- International Awareness and Involvement
- Physical and Mental Health
- Political Awareness and Involvement.
