Who we are
Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. was established by four women on April 6, 1987 at Texas Tech University as a Latina based organization focused on providing community service to the campus, local and national communities.
With over 5,000 sisters made up of 70 undergraduate chapters and 20 graduate chapters across the country, KDChi’s goal is to help young women of all backgrounds achieve the dream of a higher education, to provide an opportunity to develop leadership skills, a world-wide network of professionals and to then continue to evolve into the leaders in the professional world while continuing to give back to the communities they live in. Undergraduate and alumnae members are recognized annually for their academic and professional achievements as well as their exemplary service contributions. The sisterhood takes pride in providing an average of over 40,000 hours of service to our surrounding communities and for holding a national grade point average above 3.0 on a four-point scale. KDChi is also an official certifying organization for the President's Volunteer Service Award.
Through our numerous professional developments, community service events, sisterhood retreats and academic and cultural workshops, KDChi’s help one another to succeed while guiding the next generation to success via mentoring programs across the country. Alumnae are whole-heartedly involved in nurturing the younger generation of KDChi leaders and are involved in the organization as any undergraduate.
Leading with Integrity, United Through Service
The purpose of Kappa Delta Chi is to promote the values of Unity, Honesty, Integrity and Leadership among women at colleges and universities. KDChi is a non-traditional sorority full of diverse members and ladies ready to make a difference in their communities. Through the hard work and dedication of all its members, Kappa Delta Chi is now one of the strongest Latina founded sororities in the country with members of all backgrounds.
Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Inc. is a Latina-founded, 501 c 7, national sorority that fosters professional development, academics and lifelong learning, and higher education degree attainment; an organization dedicated to community service to institutions of higher education and the community with an emphasis on the Hispanic/Latino population.
While there are many community service contributions that our sisters make around the country, the official national philanthropy of Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Inc., is the American Cancer Society. KDChi chapters around the country produce annually educational and health awareness programs as well as fundraise thousands of dollars on behalf of the cause.
National Alumnae Association (NAA)
The mission of the NAA is to provide a continued association with the sorority after graduation. Through a support structure and development source, members not only continue to impact the community but also become mentors for one another and undergraduate sisters. Alumnae have the opportunity to contribute their time and energy to but are not limited to, fundraising, scholarship/fellowship fund establishment, service programs and social events as well as the support of the National Conference. The NAA has nearly 20 established graduate/professional chapters across the country that conduct programs for the surrounding undergraduate chapters and connects sisters living around the world. The NAA also has an established Graduate/Professional Member Intake Program that is designed for interested women who did not have the opportunity to obtain membership in Kappa Delta Chi as a collegian. A candidate for membership is a professional woman who is a leader in her community, lives a life of service, and has expressed a commitment to lifelong learning. An interested woman must also have received a degree from a four-year accredited institution of higher education.

Kappa Delta Chi Sorority does not encourage, condone or tolerate hazing in any form; we have a zero tolerance policy with regards to hazing. Hazing is illegal and is contrary to the fundamental values and principles of our sisterhood. We are proud to stand as one of the rare Greek letter organizations that can say we do not haze and have experienced no litigation in regards to it throughout our 30 years of existence.
