OUR 
STORY

Fifteen women at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign were looking for a sorority that not only appreciated sisterhood, friendship, community service, and women empowerment; but one that also represents all cultures. After searching for two years, those fifteen women founded Delta Xi Phi Multicultural Sorority on April 20th 1994. Decades later and now with over twenty chapters, Delta Xi Phi's mission has stayed constant: to promote and spread multicultural awareness in communities both local and global. 

All members of Delta Xi Phi, past and present, have represented the five pillars of this sorority: Sisterhood, Philanthropy, Increasing Multicultural Awareness, Friendship, and The Advancement of Women Through Higher Education. We as sisters make lifelong friendships through sisterhood and friendship even after graduation.

Through philanthropy, we give back to others, in both Amherst and nationally, who are in less fortunate circumstances. By increasing multicultural awareness, we invite others, and even ourselves, to understand different backgrounds. Finally, through the advancement of women through higher education, as sisters, we promise to one another that we will be each other's support system.

HISTORY OF THE IOTA CHAPTER

The Iota chapter of Delta Xi Phi Multicultural Sorority, Inc, was founded on March 21st, 2002 at 12:45 A.M, becoming the first Delta Xi Phi chapter on the East Coast. But our story began two years prior:

In the fall semester of 2000, when Betty Alban took the initiative to organize an interest group to bring the multicultural sisterhood of Delta Xi Phi onto the UMass campus. One of the most committed women that Betty recruited early in the process was Tanisha Wilson.

The associate members, Betty Alban, Yevgeniya Gorlovsky, Maya Perepelitsky, and Tanisha Wilson were initially inducted as the Kappa Colony but later reassigned as Iota.

Beta sister and National Former Delta Xi Phi President, Guillermina Sanchez-Alfaro, educated these women through their new member process. It was at California State University-Chico, that the Beta Associate Chapter sisters proudly initiated Ms. Alban, Ms. Gorlovsky, Ms. Perepelitsky, and Ms. Wilson as the founding sisters of the ninth associate chapter of Delta Xi Phi Multicultural Sorority, Inc.
