historynationalOn October 22, 1989, a group of women gathered at the Chicano Native American Cultural Center to form an organization of Latina women at the University of Iowa. Their goal was to form a group that would provide social and academic support to Latinas and women of all cultures.

After persistent work and dedication, the Panhellenic Council at the University of Iowa recognized Sigma Lambda Gamma as a sorority on April 9, 1990. This is the day that Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority recognizes as its founding date.

Today, Sigma Lambda Gamma National Sorority has chapters all over the United States, varying from New York to Texas, and Florida to California. Our members have recognized the need for community and support among women of all cultures at their universities and colleges, and are dedicated to the overall success of women throughout the world.
