Recognizing Cameron Carey

Cameron Carey, 2012 initiate of the Epsilon Iota chapter of Delta Sigma Phi at University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, has been recognized with the E. Allen James Outstanding Undergraduate Award.

The E. Allen James Award is the highest award the Fraternity can give to an undergraduate brother. On  the award, Tom Cycyota, National President of Delta Sigma Phi, shared “Only one undergraduate brother will receive the E. Allen James Award each year. The honor goes to an individual who truly embodies the mission and values of Delta Sigma Phi, and has consistently gone above and beyond in their service within the Fraternity and their local college community.”

The award is named in honor of E. Allen James, North Carolina State ’65, whose service to the Fraternity has included executive director, member of the Grand Council, and president of the Delta Sigma Phi Foundation. Mr. James was present to bestow his namesake award to Carey.

“I am amazed at the accomplishments of Cam Carey during his undergraduate career at University of Wisconsin, Lacrosse. It is clear Cam put into action the many leadership techniques he learned from participating in Delta Sig training events. His chapter, Epsilon Iota, benefitted, as did his University. It was an honor to present the E. Allen James Outstanding Undergraduate Award to Cam and to know he is currently working for the national fraternity. More brothers across the country will now learn from him.”

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – June 10, 2016 – Dr. Pat Bosco, an 1969 initiate of the Alpha Upsilon chapter of Delta Sigma Phi, at Kansas State University, has been recognized by the Fraternity Executives Association with a Distinguished Service Award.

The Distinguished Service Award recognizes individuals “who have contributed outstanding service in the betterment of all college fraternal organizations”. Delta Sigma Phi nominated Dr. Bosco for his long-time dedication to fraternities throughout his career, including Delta Sigma Phi.

Dr. Bosco has served as Director of Student Activities at Kansas State University, and more recently as Vice President of Student Life and Dean of Students, also at K-State. His position has allowed him the opportunity to work hands-on with more than 50 fraternities and sororities throughout his 40 year career. He has received numerous awards from various Greek organizations, including recognition from Sigma Lambda Beta, Alpha Tau Omega, and Delta Sigma Phi.

“Dr. Bosco’s tireless dedication to the Greek community at Kansas State University is a testament to his character. As a Delta Sig, he represents the type of man we hope all of our young members aspire to be.”, said Patrick F. Jessee, Executive Director and CEO of Delta Sigma Phi.

Delta Sigma Phi Recognized by North-American Interfraternity Conference

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – June 7, 2016 – Delta Sigma Phi, together with Alpha Tau Omega, Kappa Alpha Order, Phi Gamma Delta, Phi Kappa Tau and Sigma Nu, has been recognized by the North-American Interfraternity Conference with a Laurel Wreath Award for the development of its Social Strengths Workshop.

“The Laurel Wreath is presented to individuals or groups in recognition of their unique programs, community outreach, or influence within the fraternal world.” The collaborative Social Strengths Workshop was developed to educate Greek community members on sexual assault, relational violence, healthy relations and bystander intervention. Developed with the aid of Aaron Boe, founder of Prevention Culture, the Social Strengths Workshop launched in 2015 with members of Sigma Nu, with 95 percent of participants stating they felt more able to recognize warning signs that crop up during arguments, beyond physical violence.

“This is a particularly great moment for the Greek community, as it displays the power of working together and the impact we can have when we are fraternal with our efforts.” said Amber Huston, Chief Operations Officer for Delta Sigma Phi.

Delta Sigma Phi remains strongly devoted to the safety of its members and those in the college community. In 2015, Delta Sigma Phi also launched GreekLifeEdu, an online education and prevention program designed to challenge members’ beliefs about alcohol, hazing and sexual assault, while also empowering them to make health and safe decisions. It provides an experience that impacts both individual behavior and chapter culture, using objective, scientifically-based content.

Cameron Warner, Director of Risk Management and Housing for Delta Sigma Phi added “Our team is thrilled to be recognized for our prevention initiatives, and this recognition from the NIC validates the work we do. More importantly, the Laurel Wreath is a challenge for Delta Sigma Phi to do more to prevent sexual and interpersonal violence. We look forward to providing more resources and opportunities for our members to leverage as we become leaders in the sexual and interpersonal violence prevention movement.”

About Prevention Culture

Founded in 2014, Indianapolis-based Prevention Culture works with organizations and institutions to evolve their prevention efforts regarding sexual assault and abuse in relationships.

New programs launching in 2016 by Prevention Culture involve a comprehensive program for athletic departments and student-athletes, a customized program for the military, and mental health education programs for the Greek community and student-athletes.

Originally motivated by the experience of a survivor close to him, Prevention Culture founder Aaron Boe set out over a decade ago to understand what would actually work to influence behavior and prevent harm before it occurs. As a result, Prevention Culture applies social psychology to target the points of greatest leverage for behavior change. Visit Prevention Culture online at Aaron Boe can be reached at

Delta Sigma Phi Alumnus Recognized

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – June 7, 2016 – Nick Sweetman, a Delta Sigma Phi member and recent graduate of Arizona State University, has been recognized by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) with their Undergraduate Award of Distinction.

The Undergraduate Award of Distinction “seeks to recognize fraternity men who have found in their experience an outlet for developing as both a leader and a better man. The recipients are those who embody the values of their fraternity and expect the same from those with whom they associate.” Nick is one of five honorees, from a Greek community of currently more than 750,000 undergraduate men.

Sweetman serves as one of two undergraduate representatives for Delta Sigma Phi’s Grand Council and chairs a national committee of undergraduate members. He has been extensively recognized for his leadership within Arizona State’s Greek community, where he has helped spearhead projects such as a mental health initiative, a project to help the local police provide toys to children in need during the holiday season, and most recently, a proposal for long-term Greek housing at Arizona State University. Nick graduated from Arizona State University in May. While at Arizona State, Nick also served as Interfraternity Council (IFC) president.  He was jointly nominated for this award by both Delta Sigma Phi and ASU.

In his nomination for Sweetman, Patrick Jessee, Executive Director and CEO of Delta Sigma Phi, stated “Nick situates himself in every conversation with reasoned, humble leadership and poise.  He comes exceptionally prepared with well-developed critical thoughts, and advocates his concerns with clarity and compassion and without hesitation.  I see him engage his fellow undergraduates with open arms, a huge smile, and a genuine passion for understanding who they are, what they desire, and how we can support them.  It truly astounds me how he’s able to put such energy and time into this role on top of his extensive academic schedule and other volunteer commitments.”
