Cincinnati Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc » Service


Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. was founded 1913 by 22 students are Howard University. These
young women wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence; to provide
scholarships; to provide support to the underserved; educate and stimulate participation in the
establishment of positive public policy; and to highlight issues and provide

  • Economic Development
  • Educational Development
  • International Awareness and Involvement
  • Physical and Mental Health
  • Political Awareness and Involvement

The Cincinnati Alumnae Chapter is dedicated to upholding the values of our founders and carrying
out their vision. While CAC supports both national and global initiatives, our primary focus and
initiatives impact the Greater Cincinnati area. We evaluate the needs of our local community and create
programming to address both the current and future states.

Our youth programs educate young girls from the Cincinnati area in science, engineering and technology
– careers typically underrepresented by women. We achieve this by partnering with local companies
and universities, such as GE, Northern Kentucky University and the University of Cincinnati. Not only
do our Physical and Mental Health initiatives include local walks/runs, such as Strides for Breast Cancer
and Stop Diabetes, but we also hold workshops to address growing concerns, such as depression and
domestic violence. And political involvement is no different. While Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. is a
non-partisan organization, we understand the importance of voting – our founders defied naysayers and
participated in the Women’s Suffrage March of 1913. Leading up to elections, CAC holds political forums
and is active in educating the community to be informed on all sides of the issues.

We love Cincinnati and we’ve made it our mission to help grow this city and its people. Are you
