Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Incorporated was founded by four amazing women at Texas Tech University, Melissa Montoya, Irene Montoya, Nellie Flores, and Cynthia Garza. It became recognized as a sorority on April 6th, 1987. It is known as the most powerful network of Latina Leaders.
The purpose of Kappa Delta Chi is to promote the values of Unity, Honesty, Integrity and Leadership among women at colleges and universities. Through service, sisterhood and a strong base in academics Kappa Delta Chi is fostering a new generation of women.
Through the hard work and dedication of all its members, Kappa Delta Chi is now one of the strongest Latina-based sororities in the country. Prestigious to be the first of its kind in the Southwest, KDChi currently holds chapters in seven regions, 15 states and 55 institutions of higher education. Kappa Delta Chi also brings a rich tradition of excellence to the institutions where they reside.
The Pi Chapter of Kappa Delta Chi Sorority, Incorporated was established in 1998. It reached chapter status on September 20th 1998. The nine women that began Pi Chapter felt that the University of Texas campus was missing something and after extensive research the women sought to bring Kappa Delta Chi to Austin. The nine women we recognize as our charters are as follows: Melissa Eureste, Jennifer Sanchez, Cristiana del Pozo, Leslie Garza, Evelyn Boyajian, Rubi Medina, Roxanne Mendez, Judith Aleman and Angela Cardenas
