Purpose

Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity organized to foster the study of business in universities; to encourage scholarship, social activity and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice; to promote closer affiliation between the commercial world and students of commerce, and to further a higher standard of commercial ethics and culture and the civic and commercial welfare of the community.


History

The Founding Fathers

Delta Sigma Pi was founded by Alexander Frank Makay, Henry Albert Tienken, Harold Valentine Jacobs, and Alfred Moysello. These four men, along with a fifth student, grew close to one another in their classes and from sharing the same subway route on their way home every evening. They often discussed topics of mutual interest including school affairs. One such topic revolved around the only fraternity at NYU's School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. These men were not invited to join Alpha Kappa Psi, so they decided to form a club that would be open to all business students. ΑΚΨ (Alpha Kappa Psi) is a co-ed professional business fraternity. ...


In 1907, the fifth student dropped from the group when he was offered the opportunity to join Alpha Kappa Psi, which was at that time the only fraternity at the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. At this time, Makay, Tienken, Jacobs, and Moysello were not invited to join. Therefore, they abandoned the plans for their club in favor of forming another Greek letter fraternity. ΑΚΨ (Alpha Kappa Psi) is a co-ed professional business fraternity. ...


Progress

In 1911, the fraternity published its first newsletter, which soon would be named The Deltasig.


The second chapter was founded at Northwestern School of Commerce. National meetings, called the Grand Chapter Congress, became a regular tradition and to this day the national fraternity meets every other year to conduct business and elect its national leaders.[3]


After rapid expansion in the early 1920s, the fraternity opened its national headquarters in Chicago, Illinois.[4] In 1957, the central office moved to Oxford, Ohio adjacent to the campus of Miami University.[4] Flag Seal Nickname: The Windy City Motto: Urbs In Horto (Latin: City in a Garden), I Will Location Location in Chicagoland and northern Illinois Coordinates , Government Country State Counties United States Illinois Cook, DuPage Mayor Richard M.

The biggest change in the history of the Fraternity took place in 1975, as the Board of Directors mandated that chapters were allowed to initiate female business students, to conform with Title IX. Initially this move was very unpopular among many members,[4] but today all chapters initiate females. Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, now known as the Patsy T. Mink Equal Opportunity in Education Act in honor of its principal author, but more commonly known simply as Title IX, is a 76-word United States law enacted on June 23, 1972 that states: No person...
