The Columbia (MD) Alumnae Chapter was chartered in 1971, just four years after the new town of Columbia was established in Howard County, Maryland. We were the first African-American Greek organization to start a chapter in Howard County and have grown to be one of the largest Delta chapters in the nation.

Our outreach programs include The Dr. Betty Shabazz Delta Academy for middle school girls interested in science and math, the Lifestyle Change Initiative in which we work to combat the high incidence of obesity, and the Financial Fortitude Program assists participants in defining goals and developing a financial plan to achieve, to name a few. In addition, we award Howard County students with scholarships on a yearly basis, this year we awarded over $20,000 in scholarships. In May 2011, our Chapter celebrated providing service to the Howard County community for 40 years. To commemorate this achievement, our County Executive honored us by proclaiming May 13, 2011 as Delta Sigma Theta Day in Howard County. We are very proud of our accomplishments and will continue to serve to work for the betterment of our community for 40 more years and beyond.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated was founded on January 13, 1913 by twenty-two collegiate women at Howard University. These students wanted to use their collective strength to promote academic excellence and to provide assistance to persons in need. The first public act performed by the Delta Founders involved their participation in the Women's Suffrage March in Washington D.C., March 1913. Delta Sigma Theta was incorporated in 1930.
