As a strong sisterhood, we support one another to ensure that each member is able to reach her full potential in any endeavor. Our commitment is expressed in our slogan, “Greater Service, Greater Progress.” We have a proud history of providing positive impact on our community.Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated was founded by seven illustrious women on November 12, 1922 at Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. In a time where African Americans were unlikely to pursue higher education and at a predominately white institute 30 miles away from the KKK, the seven founders persevered and succeeded in building a life-long bond. Today, the sorority continues to thrive as a leader among service organizations. We are committed to improving the quality of life of our members and the societies that we serve. We believe that as innovators and leaders we can make a difference in our communities through; Greater Service, Greater Progress.
