Alpha Xi Delta displays the characteristics and values important to the Fraternity through our member programming. Our programs positively impact the campus and greater community, as well as develop and nurture the individual.
Realize Your Potential Program
Much of Alpha Xi Delta's programming focuses on the personal growth and development of our members beyond the classroom. Alpha Xi Delta's member development program, the Realize Your Potential Program, helps young women discover and develop the skills to work with others. It is a powerful and original program built to strengthen competencies in four areas: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness and relationship management. Each month chapters complete one of 24 experiential learning sessions.
In 2006, Alpha Xi Delta launched StrengthsQuest, a program designed to allow our members to develop skills and goals by focusing on maximizing their strengths rather than their weaknesses. The program helps Alpha Xi Delta members discover and develop their greatest talents and use those talents to improve grades and learning. Ultimately, StrengthsQuest helps Sisters learn what they do best and build their lives on those talents. Currently used by Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity staff, volunteer boards and select pilot chapters, the Fraternity continues to roll this program out to additional chapters. All colonies and new chapters are included in this program.
Bridges is a program for collegiate members of Alpha Xi Delta in their senior year. The program helps members explore their unique role as seniors in their chapters, encourages them to make the most of this time and educates them on membership in Alpha Xi Delta after college.
Academic Achievement Program
The objective of Alpha Xi Delta's Academic Achievement Program is to enable each chapter to encourage and aid chapter members in achieving academic success and to assist members in realizing their scholastic and personal potential. The Fraternity provides a model program to our college chapters, yet we encourage each chapter to develop a program to meet its particular needs either through a partnership with their university or using available campus resources and support. Alpha Xi Delta requires members to maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA.
AllOne Health's Talk One-2-One Program
Alpha Xi Delta Fraternity has partnered with AllOne Health to provide Talk One-2-One, a confidential counseling service provider, to its collegiate members. Members can use Talk One-2-One confidentially and free of charge to discuss issues such as depression, roommate issues, eating disorders, stress, money issues and alcohol/drug issues. With this partnership, Alpha Xi Delta's collegiate members, advisors, Fraternity volunteers and members' parents, can call the Talk One-2-One 1-800 number, day or night, and speak to a professionally-trained counselor to tackle problems through support, advocacy and empowerment. The phone number is 1-800-756-3124.
Risk management education provides the tools for identifying dangerous situations and understanding the potential liability of our actions. Even more importantly, risk management education promotes an understanding of responsibility. Ultimately, risk management is about caring. With this in mind, Alpha Xi Delta developed C.A.R.E. (Communication, Action, Responsibility and Education). This risk management handbook details information needed in risk management situations. In addition, Alpha Xi Delta maintains a social policy to help educate our collegiate women on the effects of alcohol and the risks involved with alcohol use.
Through Courageous Conversations, Sisters are led through material designed to educate and empower our members on issues surrounding sexual assault prevention and healthy relationships. Created with the unique characteristics of a women’s organization in mind, the program allows for honest dialog among Sisters in an environment that encourages support and learning. Trained and experienced facilitators guide members through an educational experience that will cultivate a deeper understanding of these complex issues.
