The Cornell Delta Phi Association is the nonprofit corporation that owns Llenroc. Incorporated in 1897, the Association oversees the Llenroc physical structure, works with undergraduate brothers, and promotes alumni engagement. The Association is governed by a volunteer board of approximately twenty elected alumni Trustees who were brothers of the chapter as undergrads, ranging from the 1970s to the 2010s. Several additional alumni serve as non-elected Associate Trustees. The Board brings a wide range of experiences and perspectives to the chapter and meets monthly.
We consider parents an important stakeholder group. Almost all of the Trustees and Associate Trustees are parents too, and two of us have sons who are current or recent undergraduate brothers. For decades, the chapter has hosted an annual Parents Weekend that allows parents to spend time at Llenroc and get to better know the brotherhood.
Historically, our chapter has offered its undergraduate brothers significant opportunities for leadership, philanthropy, and growth. Our large and loyal alumni base provides opportunities for mentorship, networking, and professional advancement after graduation.
During the chapter’s hiatus from campus from 2018 to 2022, the Association invested tremendous resources into a thoughtful and purpose-driven re-start, ranging from a re-prioritization of the chapter’s values to major renovations to Llenroc. The Association is committed to maintaining a chapter known for deep and lasting friendships, an engaged and enthusiastic undergraduate membership, a safe and meaningful new member orientation program, and an intimate and familial living experience within the setting of a large and elite university.
