Delta Chi Xi Honorary Dance Fraternity, Incorporated (ΔΧΞ), more commonly referred to as Delta Chi Xi, is a co-ed honorary professional fraternity and member of the Professional Fraternity Association organized to acknowledge academic excellence, serve the community, and share the art of dance among fellow students.[1]

History[edit]

Later it was transformed into an Honorary Professional Fraternity.[2]

Mission[edit]

The official Delta Chi Xi mission statement:
