What began as a vision shared by these twenty-two bold and ambitious students, has paved the way for what has become the single largest African-American women’s organization in this country. For more than nine decades, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has transformed several lives and has impacted countless communities in the United States and abroad. Since our founding on January 13, 1913, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has grown into a sisterhood connecting more than 200,000 members operating in more than 900 chapters throughout the world.
Standing on the shoulders of giants, Delta women continue to innovate and make a difference in the communities we serve. Following in the footsteps of our Founders, we are guided by our biennial theme, “Delta Sigma Theta- A Sisterhood Called to Serve: Transforming Lives, Impacting Communities.”With a Servant’s Heart,
