Sigma Kappa Sorority Announcement
It is with deep regret that the national council of Sigma Kappa Sorority announces that on
December 8, 2012 the Kappa Theta Chapter (Saint Louis University) of Sigma Kappa Sorority
will close.
Members of Kappa Theta Chapter determined that they were unable to meet chapter and
organizational goals and on November 4, 2012 voted to request dormant status. This decision
comes after a long period of hard and focused work by the chapter and national leadership.
National council accepted the chapter’s request and the status change will be effective
December 8, 2012. Members of Kappa Theta Chapter will be granted alumna status.
Sigma Kappa was established at Saint Louis University in 1999. The Sorority looks forward to
the opportunity to rejoin the strong fraternity and sorority community at Saint Louis
University in the future.
Sigma Kappa Sorority, founded in 1874, is a national not-for-profit organization of more than
152,000 women dedicated to excellence in academics, personal character, and service to society.
The purpose of Sigma Kappa Sorority is to “provide women lifelong opportunities and support
for social, intellectual, and spiritual development by bringing women together to positively
impact our communities.”
