Welcome to the official website of the Ithaca Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated. It is my pleasure to serve as the new president of IAC for this term. We are a chapter of strong educated women who are committed to our Founders vision of sisterhood, scholarship, and service. Since our charter in 1980, IAC has been a visible force in the Ithaca community, implementing a variety of service projects that focus on the Sorority’s five point programmatic thrust in the areas of: Economic Development, Educational Development, International Awareness and Involvement, Physical and Mental Health, and Political Awareness and Involvement. As we approach another year of dedicated service to our community, IAC will continue our mission to provide leadership and scholarships to youth in our community, continue to support projects that transform the lives of families, participate in charitable events, and continue our work as social activists. We thank you for visiting our website and we hope to have you join us at our next event.
