Welcome to the online home of the Dynamic and Historic Eastern Region of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. The Eastern Region is the birthplace of our distinguished sisterhood, where in 1913 the hopes, dreams and prayers of 22 Howard University female students led to the founding of our Sorority. Today sorors from the Eastern Region and around the world honor the legacy of our Founders as we touch hundreds of thousands of lives by improving communities through service, leadership and empowerment.

From our historic roots 126 active chapters now represent the Eastern Region, which consists of Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, DC. International chapters of the Eastern Region include: England, Germany, and the U.S. Virgin Islands (St. Croix and St. Thomas).

We are excited to serve as the leaders of an extraordinary group of women committed to fulfilling the vision and purpose of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. as we render public service, impact public policy and maintain a high standard of academic excellence; all while ensuring Delta's relevance with each succeeding decade.

Keeping Excellence and Purpose in the East,
