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.

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. 

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc.  

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.
