History

In the spring of 1997, a group of women at the University of Rochester came together to research the idea of bringing a Latina Greek-Letter organization to their campus. They were looking for an organization dedicated to sisterhood and community service, with a special emphasis on under-represented populations. They felt a need for an organization that would bring women of the same ideals together and form a connection that would last beyond their college years. The following semester, fall of 1997, after extensive research and interactions with several Latina-oriented organizations, the group narrowed down its list and made their final decision.

The professionalism, sincerity, and commitment of Las Hermanas as individuals and the organization as a whole made the decision to choose Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. unmistakably clear. The Sorority was truly, and undoubtedly, living out its goals and purpose at both the undergraduate and Alumnae levels. The women saw and experienced the strength of this Hermandad. It did, in fact, transcend the collegiate experience.

After much hard work and dedication, three exceptional women established the Lambda Chapter of Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/ Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. on March 20, 1999.
