Biographical / Historical

Sigma Lamda Beta is a historically Latino based fraternity founded in the University of Iowa in 1986. The original twenty founding fathers of the organization sought to unify the Latino community in the University of Iowa. Since its founding, Sigma Lambda Beta has met the need for a Latino fraternity in many predominately non-Hispanic white institutions. The organization's four founding principles include brotherhood, scholarship, community service, and cultural awareness.
