Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to provide services and programs to advance the well-being of humankind. A sisterhood of more than 200,000 predominately Black 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 Korea. The major programs of the Sorority are based upon the organization's Five-Point Thrust:

  • Economic Development
  • Educational Development
  • International Awareness and involvement
  • Physical and Mental Health
  • Political Awareness and Involvement

The Sorority was founded in 1913 by 22 students at Howard University. These young women wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to the needy.

The Sorority holds its National Convention bi-annually to set policies and to determine programmatic goals. Regional Conferences are held in the seven geographic regions of the organization during non-convention years. In the interim, the Executive Board, consisting of elected and appointed members, volunteers to establish and implement policies, as needed. A paid professional staff operate the National Headquarters office in Washington, DC.
