Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated is the first sorority organized on a predominately white college campus by and for African American women who were educators. Over its 93 years, the sorority has expanded to become an organization of diverse ethnicities, career fields and backgrounds.
Sigma Gamma Rho was founded on November 12, 1922 on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana by seven young and driven educators: Mary Lou Allison Gardner Little, Dorothy Hanley Whiteside, Vivian White Marbury, Nannie Mae Gahn Johnson, Hattie Mae Dulin Redford, Bessie Mae 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.
Sigma Gamma Rho is a non-profit sorority whose aim is to enhance the quality of life within the community. Public service, leadership development and the education of youth are the hallmarks of the organization's programs and activities.
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. has over 90,000 members with more than 500 undergraduate and graduate chapters throughout the United States, Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Africa, Germany and Korea
