Kappa Delta Chi was founded in 1987 by four women at Texas Tech who shared a dream of creating an organization that united Hispanic women in order to promote leadership and instill good values. Since then, Kappa Delta Chi has expanded across the country and grown in both the number of chapters and the diverse backgrounds of people. The sorority prides itself on doing excellent community service, creating lifelong sisterhoods, promoting multiculturalism, and focusing on the values of Unity, Honesty, Integrity, and Leadership.
