HISTORY

During the fall of 1989, the foundation of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. was commenced by collegiate women who recognized the need to form an organization that provided empowerment to women of all cultural backgrounds. The humble beginnings of Sigma Lambda Gamma were built at the University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa where the vision was to create a network of academic and social support for Latina women. Under the guidance of Esther Materon Arum and Mary Peterson, the vision came to fruition on April 9th, 1990, as the University of Iowa Panhellenic Council officially recognized the organization as a sorority.


The Lambda Delta Chapter at Houston Baptist University was officially established October 4th, 2010.
