TriDelta Woman of Achievement of the Year

Although there were three women’s groups represented at Boston University in 1888, seniors Sarah Ida Shaw and Eleanor Dorcas Pond saw a need for a different organization that would “be kind alike to all and think more of the girl’s inner self and character than of her personal appearance.” Not only did these two young women create the framework of our organization, but they also created its Rituals and symbols, wrote its constitution and designed its emblems. All was finished on Thanksgiving Eve 1888 when the two embraced each other and declared “Tri Delta is founded.” More than 126 years later, their vision has grown into the dynamic women’s organization we know today.

The Tri Delta Foundation fulfills Tri Delta’s Purpose of “assisting its members in every possible way.” By raising and awarding funds to provide undergraduate and graduate scholarships, help members in dire financial need, and support the Fraternity’s innovative educational programs, the Foundation helps women live, learn and lead…with Purpose, for a lifetime.
