Historically Black Letter Greek Organizations


The Office of Multicultural Student Services also supports Historically Black Letter Greek Organizations.  The following Black Letter Greek Organizations are currently active at Robert Morris University.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.  

Alpha Kappa Alpha is an international organization founded at Howard in 1908. The Alpha Sigma chapter is a "city-wide" chapter shared by Robert Morris University with Carlow, Carnegie Mellon, Chatham, and Duquesne Universities. Its membership is comprised of distinguished women who boast excellent academic records, proven leadership skills, and are involved in the global community through advocacy and service.

Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.

Kappa Alpha Psi, a college Fraternity, was born in an environment saturated in racism.  The state of Indiana became the 19th state of the Union in 1816 and it founded Indiana University in Bloomington four years later. Kappa Alpha Psi sponsors programs providing community service, social welfare, and academic scholarship through the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation and is a supporter of the United Negro College Fund and Habitat for Humanity. 

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated is an organization of college-educated women committed to the constructive development of its members and to public service with a primary focus on the Black community. The major programs of the sorority are based upon the organization's Five-Point Programmatic Thrust. More than ten thousand members typically attend Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated's biennial national conventions, and each of the seven regional conferences (held during years when there is no national convention) typically hosts thousands of members. At its recent 51st National convention held in the District of Columbia, more than 38,000 members registered and attended.

Phi Beta Sigma was founded by three young African-American male students at Howard University. The Founders wanted to organize a Greek letter fraternity that would truly exemplify the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship, and service. They believed that each potential member should be judged on his own merits rather than his family affluence, without regard to race, nationality, color, skin tone or texture of hair. 

Zeta Phi Beta, Sorority, Inc.

The Sigma Sigma Chapter of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated is the first African-American sorority on the campus of Robert Morris University.  The ladies of Zeta Phi Beta value the ideals of Sisterhood, Finer Womanhood, Service, and Scholarship.  There is a Zeta in a girl regardless of race, creed, or color, who has high standards of principles, a good scholarly average, and an active interest in all things. 

Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc.

Iota Phi Theta is an international organization founded at Morgan State College (now Morgan State University) in 1963.  Founded during the Civil Rights Movement, the Iotas, as they are collectively known have been civil rights and social justice advocates.  Their motto is, Building a Tradition, Not Resting Upon One. Their national philanthropy is the No Youth Left Behind Foundation.
