- History -
It started out as a vision that eleven friends had at the University of Arizona. They wanted to bring an organization that promoted not only positive Asian American awareness, but emphasized exceptional leadership development at the University of Arizona. Since the college experience can be overwhelming, they also wanted to create a sisterhood that was like a family away from home for their sisters.
On October 12, 2000, the eleven Founding Mothers came together and began their journey. After many months of sisterhood, research and dedication Delta Chi Lambda was born. With the help of their advisor Wellington Chu, the proper steps were taken to build the backbone of what is now DChiL.
Official recognition at the University of Arizona under the PanHellenic Council took place in June 2002. As the sisterhood flourished, Delta Chi Lambda saw the need for Expansion and the National Board was established in May 2009 with expansion two other universities: Beta Chapter at Arizona State University in 2010 and Gamma Chapter at Northern Arizona University in 2011.
- Academics -
Delta Chi Lambda's first priority is academics. It is one of the key elements that build the foundation of success during college years. We support and encourage our sisters to achieve academic excellence by providing numerous academic services as well as a GPA requirement. We strive to balance academics with sorority activities through time management, organization, and overall responsibility.
- Sisterhood -
Delta Chi Lambda provides its sisters with a lifetime of sisterhood and loyalty that will endure for years after she leaves the University. Our sisterhood comprises of a number of unique bonds shared between the different roles in our sorority, such as big sisters, pledge sisters (the class in which a sister rushes, pledges, and crosses with), and pledge moms. We also provide our sisters with sisterhoods, or events that give us the opportunity to bond with one another. Delta Chi Lambda's sisterhood is truly unique as we shared a bond so deep, it cannot be described by words and may only be understood through experience.
- Leadership -
Delta Chi Lambda provides its sisters plenty of opportunity and experience for leadership positions. Our Chapters have Executive Board positions that are elected yearly, while the Chapter Officer positions are elected each semester. We also instill a sense of credibility and responsibility in our members which assist in leadership in and outside of Delta Chi Lambda.
- Community Service & Philanthropy -
Our chapters participates in various philanthropic and community service activities on campus and in their local community. In addition, we emphasize unity among chapters through our common goal in supporting the World Food Programme as our national philanthropy..
