Sigma Delta Pi

(National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society)

Sigma Delta Pi, founded in 1919 at the University of California, Berkeley, is the only national honor society recognizing outstanding college and university students of Spanish. The Ohio University chapter, Phi Rho, was founded in 1986 and has inducted more than 450 members. Certification from the Association of College Honor Societies attests to Sigma Delta Pi’s legitimacy and renown, and more than 590 active chapters promote and reward the study of Spanish in US colleges and universities. The society is affiliated with the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese (AATSP); the North American Academy of the Spanish Language (ANLE); the Instituto Internacional Sampere in Spain and Ecuador; UNINTER of Cuernavaca, Mexico, the Academia Latinoamericana de Español in Ecuador; and the Instituto Franklin-Universidad de Alcalá de Henares in Spain. The society awards various scholarships, prizes, and grants to members each year.

Ohio University’s chapter of Sigma Delta Pi hosts events every semester. Members are required to attend two events per semester, organized by the Department of Modern Languages, Latin American Studies, or any other club or organization relating to Spanish language or culture.
