|The history of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.|
Grand Chapter HistoryTwenty-Two undergraduate women established Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc, a private, non-profit organization on January 13, 1913 at Howard University in Washington, D.C. These young women wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need. Delta's purpose is to provide services and programs to advance the well being of humankind.

It has collegiate members who are currently matriculating at colleges and universities. A sisterhood of more than 200,000 predominately African-American college educated women, the Sorority currently has over 900 chapters located in the United States, England, Panama Canal, Japan, Germany, the Virgin Islands, Bermuda, Haiti, Liberia, the Bahamas and the Republic of Koreas.
