About Delta Sigma Theta Sorority

At the inception of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated, our 22 Founders envisioned an organization of college women pledged to serious endeavors and community service.  These youthful students demonstrated a vital concern for social welfare, academic excellence, and cultural enrichment, and de-emphasized the social side of sorority life.  Their ideals of scholarship and service have withstood the test of time; and today, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a public service sorority, dedicated to a program of sharing membership skills and organizational services in the public interest.

About the Bloomington-Normal Alumnae Chapter

From within the Mighty Midwest Region . . .

In a twin-city community that is home to two major universities and numerous employers, Bloomington-Normal Deltas frequently enjoyed the sisterhood and fellowship of Sorors living in and/or relocating to the area.  With, at that time, two undergraduate chapters, Alumnae Sorors saw the need to establish a graduate chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.On March 20, 1982, area Sorors met in Hovey Hall at Illinois State University to discuss the establishment of an alumnae chapter.

With a clear vision in the hearts and minds of 12 women, the Bloomington-Normal Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated was chartered on March 27, 1983, by Hortense Golden Canady, the sorority’s 18th National President.
