What if you could make friends with other individuals who share your interests and goals? What if you were supported in your personal pursuits while having incredible experiences and an amazing time? What if you could change the world—starting now?

You can. Theta Delta Sigma is much more than a college club—it’s a lifetime experience and membership in an organization full of diverse individuals who make a difference personally, culturally, and socially. Theta Delta Sigma is a national association that is creating a tradition of transcendence. As one of few fraternal organizations with a focus on diversity, Theta Delta Sigma is the premier multicultural society.

Since its inception on April 15, 2001, Theta Delta Sigma has been a top choice for individuals seeking to be part of a multicultural network of scholars striving to make a difference in the world through the core values of leadership, diversity, unity, and respect. We are an inclusive group, open to all backgrounds and genders, and we welcome you to become part of our amazing organization so that together, we can pursue a common goal – making diversity the rule instead of the exception. Theta Delta Sigma has helped to advocate for a variety of human causes, including equal rights, and empowering marginalized populations. Inclusion, rather than exclusion, is the foundation of Theta Delta Sigma.

Theta Delta Sigma offers a national affiliation that has benefits far beyond what a local group would be able to take advantage of by itself. Through Theta Delta Sigma, you can share life experiences while networking with students and alumni from around the world. Our members focus on academic achievement, being well-rounded, involved on campus, and making a difference in the community, creating memories, and building strong bonds through lifelong Siblinghood. Theta Delta Sigma is far from being the stereotypical fraternity or sorority; and provides unique opportunities that encourage unlimited possibilities. Our members are diverse by choice and support one another in realizing their potential and thriving in a multicultural world.
