The purpose of this sorority, which was created on a dominantly male campus, was to develop a premier women’s organization which fosters everlasting friendships, the pursuit of knowledge, and lifelong service to others.

The national philanthropies of Delta Zeta include The Painted Turtle Camp and speech and hearing. In support of speech and hearing, Delta Zeta has national partnerships with Starkey Hearing Foundation, Gallaudet University, and The House Research Institute. Every year, Delta Zeta also raises money for the March of Dimes and walks in support of research for the birth of healthy babies.
