The Fraternity Awards and Accreditation Report (FAAR) is the chapter operations assessment tool of Delta Tau Delta. Chapters are required to submit annual reports outlining the processes and programs developed by the Chapter. Materials are to be submitted by chapters to the Central Office by November 1 annually.


The Arch Chapter adopts annually a set of criteria as the minimum operating standards of a chapter. Chapters are expected to submit materials to show proof of completion by November 1 annually. Items are reviewed and approved by the Central Office Staff. Should a chapter fail to meet accreditation by December 1, the chapter will be provided additional support throughout the year.


The FAAR is the primary tool for the Fraternity to bestow awards on its chapters. The Hugh Shields Awards for Chapter Excellence and the Court of Honor are awarded based on chapter submissions.
