Almost a hundred years ago, seven Jewish women attending Cornell University were amongst many women who were discriminated against by Greek organizations since they were part of a minority. In response to such exclusion, these seven women decided to establish their own sorority that would respect the individuality of its members. Thus, Sigma Delta Tau was founded in 1917 at Cornell University. At the present time, SDT exists as a National Sorority that is a member of the National Panhellenic Conference.
