Delta Gamma Fraternity Plans Return to Harvard University in Spring 2022
Columbus, Ohio [July 15, 2021]— Delta Gamma Fraternity is pleased to announce its return to Harvard University in spring 2022. Fraternity leaders and staff have been diligently monitoring the campus climate to find the right time to reestablish its Zeta Phi-Cambridge Area chapter following closure in 2018. With the successful repeal of the Harvard’s sanctions against single sex organizations and the support of the National Panhellenic Conference (NPC), we are confident in planning a campus return to offer women at Harvard a sense of community, ongoing personal development, avenues of service and unique leadership opportunities.
Fraternity President Wilma Johnson Wilbanks, Alpha Psi-Mississippi, shared “After receiving the news that the Harvard sanctions had ceased and single sex organizations like ours would be welcomed on campus, we are confident that Delta Gamma once again will offer a supportive space in which women of different backgrounds and perspectives can come together to empower one another and enjoy strengthened support at Harvard and during all subsequent stages of life. We look forward to re-starting and celebrating the fraternal experience on this campus in partnership with our dedicated alumnae and the other NPC organizations which have decided to join us next spring.”
The chapter was first established in 1994 and has 784 initiated members. In its history, the chapter has raised over $15,000 for the Delta Gamma Foundation. The Fraternity looks forward to welcoming back this collegiate chapter and the seeing the force for good we know our members will continue to be.
