ΔΣΠ (Delta Sigma Pi) is a co-ed professional business fraternity in the United States of America. It was founded on November 7, 1907 at the School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance, New York University, New York, New York and is currently headquartered in Oxford, Ohio. The Fraternity has 192 active chapters and colonies with over 220,000 initiated members.
Fraternity chapters and members focus on four areas to better themselves: Finance, professional, community service, and social activities.
Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity organized to foster the study of business in universities; to encourage scholarship, social activity and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice; to promote closer affiliation between the commercial world and students of commerce, and to further a higher standard of commercial ethics and culture and the civic and commercial welfare of the community.
Delta Sigma Pi was founded by Alexander Frank Makay, Henry Albert Tienken, Harold Valentine Jacobs, and Alfred Moysello. These four men, along with a fifth student, grew close to one another in their classes and from sharing the same subway route on their way home every evening. They often discussed topics of mutual interest including school affairs. One such topic revolved around the only fraternity at NYU's School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. These men were not invited to join Alpha Kappa Psi, so they decided to form a club that would be open to all business students.
In 1907, the fifth student dropped from the group when he was offered the opportunity to join Alpha Kappa Psi, which was at that time the only fraternity at the School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. At this time, Makay, Tienken, Jacobs, and Moysello were not invited to join. Therefore, they abandoned the plans for their club in favor of forming another Greek letter fraternity.
In 1911, the fraternity published its first newsletter, which soon would be named The Deltasig.
The second chapter was founded at Northwestern School of Commerce. National meetings, called the Grand Chapter Congress, became a regular tradition and to this day the national fraternity meets every other year to conduct business and elect its national leaders.
After rapid expansion in the early 1920s, the fraternity opened its national headquarters in Chicago, Illinois. In 1957, the central office moved to Oxford, Ohio adjacent to the campus of Miami University.
The biggest change in the history of the Fraternity took place in 1975, as the Board of Directors mandated that chapters were allowed to initiate female business students, to conform with Title IX. Initially this move was very unpopular among many members, but today all chapters initiate females.
The following Brothers have, through their personal and professional achievements, distinguished themselves as exemplary Brothers of the fraternity. They have made significant contributions to business, government, education, entertainment, or the Fraternity.
Since its inception in 1907, Delta Sigma Pi has installed 264 chapters, of which 192 remain active. In addition to these chapters, Delta Sigma Pi currently has active colonies at 13 universities.
Delta Sigma Pi has 60 alumni franchised Alumni Chapters on its roll for the 2007-2008 year in the United States, and over 40 more locations worldwide have Brothers with an interest in starting a new Alumni Chapter.
