Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, was founded on November 14, 1919, at the University of California, Berkeley by a junior undergraduate student named Ruth Helen Barnes. Later that same academic year, on May 1, 1920, the first formal induction ceremony was conducted. Therefore, the Society’s centennial celebration begins January 1, 2019 and continues through June 30, 2020 with numerous initiatives and opportunities that will highlight Sigma Delta Pi’s 100-year history.
Each new member initiated during the 2019 calendar year will receive a special commemorative membership pin of the design posted above. Existing members of Sigma Delta Pi may also purchase this pin for the cost of $10 through their home chapters.
The following links serve to assist members, chapters and friends of Sigma Delta Pi with participating in our centennial celebration:
