Kappa Delta is committed to providing all members opportunities for growth and lifetime learning. Our member education includes quality programming on important topics.
Relevant member education begins soon after a new member accepts her bid. Members participate in member education workshops, which are held in conjunction with chapter meetings to keep from overtaxing already busy schedules. Chapter members complete educational sessions on Kappa Delta’s Ritual and heritage, academic excellence, risk management, leadership and community service.
Chapter leaders also develop workshops on the four PACE topics based on members' interests and needs of the chapter. These workshops often utilize outside speakers and campus resources.
- Personal Presence – focuses on body image, self-esteem, embracing differences and other related topics. The workshop highlights our commitment to building confidence in women.
- Attitude – centers on how an individual's attitude can impact her success in college, in relationships and in life.
- Communication – focuses on helping members develop effective communication skills, both written and verbal.
- Enlarging Our World – encourages members to expand their view of the world and learn more about global issues and people from diverse backgrounds.
A Kappa Delta is always growing as an individual and learning more to better herself and the people around her! In addition to finding opportunities for growth and leadership within our chapter, the Kappa Deltas at Birmingham-Southern are involved in and hold leadership roles in a variety of campus organizations. As part of our membership in Kappa Delta, all sisters are encouraged to participate in other campus organizations, and we have truly taken this to heart! Our sisters are members of Southern Ambassadors, the Honor Council, Quest II, the Bunting Center, the Orientation Team, SGA, the President’s Service team, Religious Life Leadership, Panhellenic, Concert Choir, and WILD, just to name a few! We also have many sisters on sports teams including the tennis, cross country, golf, track, soccer, volleyball, and swim teams! Within these organizations, seven of our sisters have been elected to the position of president, and numerous others hold leadership positions.
