President’s Greeting


Greetings Sorors and Friends!

Welcome to the official website of the Indianapolis Alumnae Chapter (IAC) of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. I am excited and honored to serve as Chapter President and pleased to share information about our illustrious sisterhood and our chapter.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated was founded on the campus of Howard University by 22 young women inspired to action and committed to public service.  Guided by Christian principles, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is an organization of college educated women committed to the constructive development of its members and to public service with a primary focus on the Black community.

Originally chartered as Chi Chapter in 1925 and restructured as Indianapolis Alumnae Chapter in 1978, members are privileged to serve eleven cities (Indianapolis, Kokomo, Zionsville, Avon, Brownsburg, Carmel, Greenwood, Fishers, Plainfield, Lafayette and West Lafayette) in our service area. 

For 41 years, IAC has provided excellence in service and programming that align with our sorority’s Five-Point Programmatic Thrust:

  • Economic Development
  • Educational Development
  • International Awareness and Involvement
  • Physical and Mental Health
  • Political Awareness and Involvement

If you are duly initiated and seeking a Delta home, we welcome you with sisterly love to attend our chapter meeting.  Meetings are typically held on the 1st Saturday of each month.

Please visit our website frequently, follow us on social media, and explore our calendar for opportunities to partner with us and to support our programs and events.  We are committed to Extending our Reach and positively impacting our community in ways that allow us to bring “Joy in our Sisterhood, Power in our Voices, and Service in our Heart.”
