Delta Chi Lambda
Alpha Chapter, University of Arizona
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.
Today we've expanded to two other universities. Beta Chapter was established in 2010 at Arizona State University and Gamma Chapter was established in 2011 at Northern Arizona University.
Delta Chi Lambda seeks to bring positive Asian American awareness to the university and local community. We strongly emphasize leadership roles among Asian Americans by striving to become leaders and mature young women through our activities. We provide our sisters with a lifetime of sisterhood and loyalty that will endure for years after they leave the university.
We, the sisters of Delta Chi Lambda, promise to promote positive Asian awareness to the university and the community. We shall strive to become well-rounded ladies of leadership and integrity. We will uphold a level of sisterhood that consists of loyalty and life-long friendships.
