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.
Our Mental Health and Wellness Committee is used to check in on members and act as a resource for members if they are struggling mentally, physically, or academically. Being the only chapter at Vanderbilt with a Mental Health and Wellness Committee, we strive to support members through their academic, mental, and physical struggles by encouraging them to utilize campus and internal resources. MHW also helps facilitate events such as the Mindfulness Workshop at our spring open chapter and the Ragan Graves Mental Health talk, as well as running KD Cares, which anonymously sends encouragement and treats to sisters who might be struggling.
