The History of Nu Chapter

Nu Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated was chartered on April 7, 1921 on the Ann Arbor campus of the University of Michigan by five outstanding African American women. At a time when only five African American women existed on the University of Michigan's segregated campus, these dynamic women prevailed in creating the first presence of a Black sorority on campus. These five women also established the oldest chapter of Delta Sigma Theta in the State of Michigan:

Mildred Bates
Thelma Childs
Jessie Craig
Helene Tines
Letty Wickliffe

These most distinguished women blazed the trail and are the foundation upon which our chapter was built. Our commitment to a lifetime of sisterhood, scholarship, and service began many years ago and will continue throughout all eternity. Our bond of sisterhood is continually deepened as Nu Chapter executes over 30 service projects, fundraisers, and educational programs. We vigorously aim for the betterment of women and our community. We commend those who continue to join us in this effort and invite all to participate in our upcoming events this year!
