Bystander Intervention and Gender-Based Violence Training
As an annual training offering for our members, DKE partners with The Landing at the U of A,   MVP Strategies,  and the Campus Sexual Assault Centre for important social awareness and culture education.  
 
Gender-based violence is something that everyone can directly influence and reduce. This informative and engaging workshop will be held on campus for all DKE members, alumni, and guests.  This training focuses on self-awareness and other-awareness, and cognizance of gender-based violence from the man's point of view.

Thursday Sep 10, 2015 Greek Food Drive went well! We raised 5260 lbs of food donations in partnership with the nice folks at Ceres, Delta Chi, Phi Delta Theta, and Delta Upsilon!
A big shout out to the fellow Greeks (and Ceres, which is a Roman society), for contributing to this.
 
Together, we raised 1760 units of food, 243 flats, 2651 pounds.  Excellent work, fraternity people!  There are many hungry students who use the Campus Food Bank, and this contribution of fruits and vegetables will really help them.
 
No student should ever go hungry, and today's group donation will make a substantial difference!
