National Herstory

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority was founded on January 13, 1913 by twenty-two collegiate women at Howard University. These students used their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need. The first public act performed by the Delta Founders involved their participation in the Women’s Suffrage March, for women’s right to vote, in Washington D.C., March 1913.  Delta Sigma Theta was incorporated in 1930.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a private, non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide assistance and support through established programs in local communities and  throughout the world. The Grand Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has a membership of over 250,000 predominately African-American, college-educated women. The Sorority currently has over 950 chapters located in the United States, Tokyo, Japan, Okinawa, Japan, Germany, Bermuda, the Bahamas, Seoul, Korea, and St. Thomas , St Croix, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and continuously growing stronger every day.

The Sisters of Mu Chapter strive to honor the values and principles that our founders built this sisterhood on. Their hard work and dedication to build a sorority dedicated to community service and academic excellence still lives on.
