Omicron Chapter of Delta Delta Delta

National Founding Date: November 28, 1888
Chapter Installation Date: October 30 & 31, 1896

Organization Values:

To develop qualities of unselfish leadership among its members, and to encourage them to assume, with integrity and devotion to moral and democratic principles, the highest responsibilities of college women.

Mission:

The Purpose of Delta Delta Delta shall be to establish a perpetual bond of friendship among its members, to develop a stronger and more womanly character, to broaden the moral and intellectual life, and to assist its members in every possible way.

Vision:

Although there were three women's groups represented at Boston University in 1888, seniors Sarah Ida Shaw and Eleanor Dorcas Pond saw a need for a different organization that would be kind alike to all and think more of the girl's inner self and character than of her personal appearance. Not only did these two young women create the framework of our organization, but they also created its Rituals and symbols, wrote its constitution, and designed its emblems. All was finished on Thanksgiving Eve in 1888 when the two embraced each other and declared Tri Delta is founded. Their vision has grown into the dynamic women's organization we know today.

Rho Chapter of Delta Gamma

National Founding Date: December 25, 1873
Chapter Founding Year: 1901

Organization Values:

Learning/Growth, Collaboration, Professionalism, and Integrity

Mission:

Delta Gamma Fraternity is committed to cultivating an inclusive and equitable environment and experience for our members, potential new members, and communities. The objects of this fraternity shall be to foster high ideals of friendship, promote educational and cultural interests, create a true sense of social responsibility, and develop the best qualities of character.

Vision:

College is full of memories and experiences that will shape a woman's life and help lead her into a lifetime of fulfilling membership as an alumna. Upon graduation, Delta Gamma's sisterhood is a network of support that enables each alumna to pursue her dreams and goals, while allowing her to give back. With opportunities to join one of more than 200 alumnae groups, mentor collegians, serve as advisers and volunteer for leadership positions, the Delta Gamma experience does not end after college. Instead, our sisterhood broadens to give each Delta Gamma the chance to continue her involvement in her own unique way. Because serving others is at the root of Delta Gamma's history, the Delta Gamma Foundation functions as the philanthropic arm of the organization.

The Foundation has been dedicated to sight conservation since 1936, when a member who was blind, Ruth Billow, Eta-Akron, asked the Fraternity to consider aiding the visually impaired. Since that time, the Foundation has grown to give millions of dollars to organizations that help further our shared mission and our members have given hundreds of thousands of service hours to those living with blindness or visual impairments.
