The Founding Mothers of Sigma Theta Psi established the sorority on November 13, 1991 at San Jose State University to fill a void of multicultural awareness on their campus.
They sought to create a sisterhood that would embrace and celebrate cultural diversity, and that was rooted in the shared principles of respect, honesty, open-mindedness, loyalty, leadership, and academic excellence.
Since its founding, Sigma Theta Psi has remained a sisterhood unparalleled by any other. The multicultural sorority is a well-organized society of dedicated and goal-oriented women, and continues to grow strong today.
