Adviser and Chapter Planning in Another Academic Year of COVID

Last academic year during the ongoing global pandemic, Sigma Delta Pi’s chapters demonstrated great resiliency through remote initiations of new members and various creative activities of engagement.

Wishing all our chapters a successful and productive academic year, and as always, please e-mail us with any unanswered questions at sdpnational@gmail.com.
