Sigma Lambda Gamma

Sigma Lambda Gamma was founded at the University of Iowa, in Iowa City, Iowa on April 9, 1990. Today, Sigma Lambda Gamma is the largest, historically Latina-based national sorority with a multicultural membership in chapters and alumnae associations throughout the United States.


During the fall of 1989, the foundation of Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority, Inc. was commenced by collegiate women who recognized the need to form an organization that provided empowerment to women of all cultural backgrounds. The founders vision was to create a network of academic and social support for Latina women.

Sigma Lambda Gamma is a sisterhood of women who have chosen this affiliation as a manner to achieve personal development and awareness to the responsibility of community involvement for the betterment of our local, regional, national, and global communities through the efforts of a network of close to 10,000 sorority members. Furthermore, we continue to be a pioneer in the Fraternal world through development of innovative programming initiatives.


Through excellence in the organization’s five founding principles, SLG provides opportunities for lifelong empowerment to its members, thereby positively influencing the global community


Empowered women leading the world.
