2. Why do you call yourselves Multicultural?
The seven original founders saw a need for a sorority that crossed the societal boundaries of race, religion, culture, and class. Although part of their vision included creating a sisterhood that physically exemplified the transcendence of those boundaries, their primary goal was to bring women together who believe in the ideal of multiculturalism and want to promote multiculturalism in their everyday lives.
While all Greek organizations are and continue to grow more diverse, our organization explicitly seeks members with multicultural ideals and interests; we seek to use our sorority as a vehicle to educate the surrounding campus and community on issues of diversity. We recognize that diversity is not limited to race, and we are proud to say we have achieved a sisterhood which is quite diverse with respect to not only race, but religious heritage, geographic origin, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, nationality, political ideology, and even choice of major and career.
Ultimately, however, we call ourselves multicultural because the one belief we share is that there is inherent value in discovering, understanding, and appreciating all the ways in which people are different from each other. It is for this reason that we differentiate ourselves, in name and in purpose, from other Greek organizations with the word "Multicultural."
