Delta's membership is significant recognition that it is devoted to the improvement of learning through experimentation and innovation.
The League places a strong emphasis on research, evaluation, and dissemination of information on innovations. In this way, potentially valuable new approaches to instruction are made known and an opportunity is provided to judge their suitability for use at other colleges. Participation in League activities enables Delta to adapt and adopt those innovative practices which have proved effective elsewhere, while sharing the results of its own innovations with colleges in other districts. This means that residents of all ages in the tri-counties have the opportunity to share in the benefits of improved instruction and services provided by the College.
