      We seek to empower women and use our unique personality to lead the way creating hope and inspiring peace.  Sigma Delta Tau is a national sorority founded at Cornell University in 1917. Our mission is to enrich the college experience of women of similar ideals, to build lasting friendships, and to foster personal growth. We promote academic achievement and support each member to reach her fullest potential. This extends beyond classrooms as we provide professional workshops, connections with alumnae, and actively encourage sisters to reach out and support one another’s achievements.  We provide intellectual opportunities through a curriculum of scholarship development, recognition incentives, and mentoring programs in order to ensure every lady is becoming her best self.  Leading the way does not start at the end of your college experience.  Sigma Delta Tau provides sisters leadership opportunities for sisters by chairing a project, leading an intramural team, holding an executive board office or managing a fundraising campaign.Our women are encouraged to develop skills, embrace talents, and pursue incredible opportunities.  


     We combine the best traits of ourselves to be a light of hope for all people.  Our philanthropy works with OPI Nail Polish and inspires our members to be entrepreneurial in their lives to benefit others. Every undergraduate chapter is actively involved in SDT’s mission to Empower Women! Through educational programming, community service, and fundraising events, our collegians supports sisters facing difficulties, the Sigma Delta Tau Foundation, Prevent Child Abuse America, and several international organizations which empower women.


     Sigma Delta Tau creates lifelong connections and enables members to explore new interests as each talented individual joins our organization. The special bond of sisterhood provides a unique relationship which begins in college and lasts a lifetime. SDT’s distinctive ties of friendship provide a network of female support in every phase of a member’s life.  Above all, we are a collection of brilliant spirits growing into empowered women.  We are adventurers, dreamers, and fully capable of achieving greatness.
