Twenty-two undergraduate women founded Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. on January 13, 1913 at Howard University. These young women wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need. Delta Sigma Theta Sorority is a private, non-profit organization whose purpose is to provide services and programs to promote human welfare. The Grand Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. has a membership of over 200,000 predominately African-American, college-educated women.

The major programs of the Sorority are based upon the organization's Five-Point Programmatic Thrust; Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, Political Awareness and Involvement. Program development and implementation in Delta is a cooperative function with committees, the national executive board, and headquarters staff involved.

The Mu Pi Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc has been an active force at the University of Delaware for over thirty years. This chapter was founded on October 26th, 1975 by eleven women as the first African-American or Multicultural Greek Letter Organization on the campus. Our mission is to enhance student life, while paying tribute to our rich heritage and honoring the educational and social goals which are detailed in the Five Point Programmatic Thrust. We bring a dynamic energy to both the National Pan-Hellenic Council and to the Greek Council. By hosting May Week, our annual week of programs, and various other events throughout the school-year, we aim to connect with the student body in both social and educational settings.. Through our philanthropy, community service and sisterhood, we hope that we can make your college experience that much better.
