What is the survey about?

Delta Lambda Phi enlisted the services of Center for Research Design and Analysis at the University of Nevada, Reno to help collect information about potential changes to DLP’s current membership requirements. This survey aims to get feedback from everyone associated with Delta Lambda Phi to better understand our members’ attitudes regarding these possible changes.
