About Delta Phi Omega Chapter

Since its chartering, Delta Phi Omega Chapter has continued to serve the Greater Twin Cities community.

Fourteen years after the founding of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Eta Chapter was established at the University of Minnesota in 1922. As young women graduated from the University and wanted to continue their affiliation with the sisterhood and the commitments to the ideals of Alpha Kappa Alpha, there became a need to establish a graduate chapter in the Twin Cities.

 

Delta Phi Omega graduate chapter was chartered April 17-18, 1948 with 12 members and 3 associate members from the Twin Cities community. The Central Regional Director, Lucille Wilkins of Chicago officiated at the chartering. The first chapter President was Margaret Young. The chapter immediately began serving the community in a variety of ways from supporting health issues to sponsoring public forums on topics of concern to the African American community and awarding scholarships to deserving students pursuing higher education.
