About the Organization


Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. was organized on November 12, 1922 in Indianapolis, Indiana by seven young African American educators: Mary Lou Allison Little, Dorothy Hanley Whiteside, Vivian White Marbury, Nannie Mae Gahn Johnson, Hattie Mae Dulin Redford, Bessie M. Downey Martin and Cubena McClure. The group became an incorporated national collegiate sorority on December 30, 1929, when a charter was granted to Alpha chapter at Butler University. Soaring to greater heights of attainment around the world, Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc., a leading national service organization, has met the challenges of the day and continues to grow through Sisterhood, Scholarship and Service. Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority's aim is to enhance the quality of life within the community. Public service, leadership development and education of youth are the hallmark of the organization's programs and activities. Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. addresses concerns that impact society educationally, civically, and economically.





Chartered on January 26,1974 in Plainfield, New Jersey, the chapter now covers Middlesex, Somerset and Union counties.  From its inception, Delta Kappa Sigma has continuously strived for the high ideals of scholastic achievement, sisterhood and community service: the principles upon which Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. was founded. Members of Delta Kappa Sigma are proven leaders, not only at the local level, but also on the Sorority’s regional and national level. Delta Kappa Sigma Alumnae Chapter has contributed to the advancement of all people by helping to produce educated women of many races, religions, ethnicities, and cultures. They’re our political and organizational leaders, doctors, nurses, layers, teachers, accountants, social workers, etc. This chapter has also been recognized by its peers and the surrounding community for all the hard work accomplished by its members. Currently, Delta Kappa Sigma Alumnae Chapter advises Sigma Gamma Rho’s Tau Gamma Chapter at Kean University and is working to reactivate the undergraduate chapter at Rutgers University, the State University of New Jersey, New Brunswick. Delta Kappa Sigma Alumnae Chapter also sponsors a Rhoer Club, and in the past has sponsored a Philo affiliate group. From 1974 to date, Delta Kappa Sigma Alumnae Chapter has upheld its purpose and mission, each day realizing the Founders’ dream – that it may serve as a quintessential trailblazer for all women.
