OUR MISSION

Alpha Gamma Delta is an international fraternity for women that exists to provide opportunities for personal development through the spirit of sisterhood. We support lifelong learning as a means to gain understanding and wisdom, promote the value of fraternal membership and commitment to higher education, help prepare members to contribute to the world's work, and advocate lifetime involvement in Alpha Gamma Delta.

Our History 

 On May 4th, 1904 at Syracuse University, 11 women came together to create this amazing organization known as Alpha Gamma Delta.  Each of them were progressive, selfless women who contributed to the growth of Alpha Gamma Delta.  Now over 100 years later, we strive to continue the vision and purpose of that amazing sisterhood. Since the founding, collegiate chapters have been installed at 188 colleges and universities across North America and more than 160,00 women have become Alpha Gam sisters. Guided by our Purpose, Alpha Gamma Deltas are impacting our communities and contributing to the world's work just as our founders did before us.
