Delta Phi Epsilon is...

Flower: Lovely Purple Iris
Mascot: The Unicorn
Jewel: Pearl
Symbol: DPHIE Crest
Colors: Royal Purple and Pure Gold organization filled with pride and love!

We were founded in 1917 at New York University's Law School by five women - Dorothy Cohen Schwartzman, Ida Bienstock Landau, Minna Goldsmith Mahler, Eva Effron Robin, and Sylvia Steierman Cohn. We are the first international nonsectarian social sorority, meaning we do not discriminate based on class, race, religious affiliation, sexuality, or creed. We believe sisterhood is not to be withheld because of our differences, but strengthened by our unique perspectives and talents. We are also the only national social sorority founded at a professional school.

We have grown to a sisterhood of 106 chapters, both national and international, and are more than 55,000 sisters strong! We work together to embody the vision of our founders and to embolden and empower ourselves as educated women.
