Chapter Housing and COVID-19
As COVID-19 continues to impact higher education across the globe, the health and safety of Alpha Delta Pi members, guests, and staff remains our top priority. Each house corporation shows its commitment to our members by continuing to create safe homes where everyone can feel secure and supported as we navigate new expectations and procedures in a COVID-aware world. Alpha Delta Pi’s Facility Resource Directors and Housing and Facilities staff are thrilled to welcome our members back home at the start of the next semester.
Operational Decisions for Housing.
As Alpha Delta Pi’s local house corporations are their own legal separate entities from Alpha Delta Pi Sorority, our local house corporations are solely responsible for the operational decisions regarding each facility. The house corporation board will drive the process and set facility protocols as to how they, as the property owner/manager, want to handle/address/abide by university, local, state, federal & CDC guidelines for their location. Please know that our house corporations’ commitment to opening facilities is closely tied to the on-campus educational experience offered through each college/university. With that in mind, each house corporation will do all that can be done to maintain standard operations.
Life within our Chapter facilities has changed in various ways since 2020 and our house corporations continue to adjust as necessary to guide our membership. Best practice still suggests minimizing contact, enhancing cleanliness, and keeping those who may be most at risk safe. Our house corporations have the ability to provided regimented cleaning, know who is coming in and out of the house, and enhance the bonds of our sisterhood while being socially distant. All facility opening decisions will be in accordance with university guidelines and policy as currently stated, as well as within the bounds of any federal, state, or local directives that may be in place.
Our house corporations have worked very hard evaluating the financial impact of housing closures and capacity adjustments experienced over the past years. This process also includes consideration of employees, external contracts, increased cleaning and sanitization expenses, and overall budget needs. As Alpha Delta Pi chapter facilities are home to close to 4,000 members across the country, please know that we continue to monitor the needs of our members and their families in conjunction with the requirements of the facilities for which our members call home.
It is unclear what the new school year may bring, but our house corporations will manage any possible challenges that arise with the support of our members, volunteers, and Executive Office staff. If your chapter has a local house corporation, they will be, if they have not already, communicating the process for moving into the facility. These details are determined by each local house corporation; please direct any questions around such directly to the local house corporation. You will find a list of our house corporations and contact emails here. (also listed below)
Living in the chapter house may continue to look or feel different, but the sisterhood will be resilient. We are committed to housing our extraordinary members who are on the path of future leadership. We look forward to welcoming you home!
