On May 13, 1995, the work and efforts put forth by women dedicated to establishing a quality Latina sorority at New York University were finally realized with the founding of Delta Chapter of Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. Impressed by the professionalism, unity and genuine commitment to community service demonstrated by Hermanas they encountered, Delta Chapter's Founding Hermanas felt that the establishment of Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. at New York University would significantly enrich its campus. As a sorority which would address Latino issues, with a special emphasis on the Latina, Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. became the first Latina sorority founded at New York University. Since then, Las Hermanas of Delta Chapter have been consistent and earnest participants within the University, always seeking ways in which to bring progressive and quality programming to the student body. They have addressed key issues in the Latino community through past community service projects such as our work with organizations like the Latino Commission on AIDS, Violence Against Women and New York Cares. The Hermanas offer cultural, political, and social events on campus throughout the semester and strive to provide information to all Latino students on campus about the many resources available to them. With this in mind, Delta Chapter always welcomes opportunities to work with other individuals and organizations who share in the Sorority's vision of creating positive changes within our communities.
Unwavering faith in the ideals of Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc., strength of character, integrity, academic excellence, and commitment to our community epitomize the qualities which our Hermanas possess. It is with pride that Delta Chapter offers programming to the larger community in the name of our beautiful Hermandad. Standing true to an organization founded by women, for women, the Hermanas at Delta Chapter set themselves apart as pioneers in bringing forth innovative ideas and dynamic energy to New York University.
