Active Undergraduate Sisters


Since our founding in 1975, Lambda Theta Alpha has evolved and continues to be a leader among the fraternal community while remaining true to our Founders’ purpose and mission – to establish a sisterhood based on unity, love and respect, and to serve as a support group catering to the needs of and empowering Latinas in higher education.

Although the cultural climate has changed, those ideals still resonate with us. LTA has a motto, “Latin by tradition, not by definition.” As a non-exclusionary sorority open to all ethnicities and backgrounds, the women who join LTA today still feel the need to promote those same values on their campus.

The actions of our Founding Mothers have allowed independent women on campus to feel a sense of belonging, creating an environment that allows them to achieve their highest potential. It is as a result of this that Lambda Theta Alpha has come to define a new role for the universal woman – one with education, goals and vision in hope of great success.

our commitments

EDUCATION founded as an academic sorority, the academic achievement of our sisters is integral to their development and active membership. We make education a high priority. We ensure our sisters’ academic excellence by providing resources and support for chapter educational programming, which includes hosting study skills workshops, time management seminars and study sessions not only for sisters but entire campus communities.
PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT our sorority nurtures an environment meant to challenge sisters to think critically about the complex world around them. Thinking more effectively allows them to better respond to adversity and leads to improved decision-making. By developing their leadership skills, intrapersonal/interpersonal skills, network and support system, our sisters attain the core competencies and skill development essential to their growth as leaders on campus and transition into the workplace.
COMMUNITY ACTIVISM since its inception, Lambda Theta Alpha has believed in social justice and equality. One way our sisters realize these beliefs is through our Political Education Initiative, which brings awareness to issues affecting marginalized communities and sisters. Using our position as leaders on campus and in the community, we strive to continue working towards the enrichment of the disenfranchised – dedicating our time to not only raising awareness, but also bringing about reform for access to opportunities and prosperity for all.

Lambda Theta Alpha recognizes the value in forming a united coalition of professional, diverse, culturally and politically conscious women.

  • important information about the sorority

  • a chance to enhance leadership and professional skills; and
  • the ability to form bonds with sisters and other women who are interested in the sorority
