Sigma Delta Pi

National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society

(La Sociedad Nacional Honoraria Hispánica)


Sigma Delta Pi was established in 1919, at the University of California Berkeley.  The Society’s insignia is the royal seal of Fernando and Isabel, representing Castille, León and Aragón, and its motto is the Greek phrase “Spanías Didagéi Proágomen” meaning “Let’s go forth/continue forth under the teaching/guidance of the Spanish language.”  

The Nu Chi chapter of Sigma Delta Pi was established at Eastern in 1979, and is the oldest honor society in the College of Arts and Sciences.  Since its inception, hundreds of students have been recognized for their outstanding achievement in Hispanic studies.
