FRATERNITY HISTORY

founders.png

Delta Sigma Pi was founded on November 7, 1907 by Alexander Frank Makay, Henry Albert Tienken, Harold Valentine Jacobs, and Alfred Moysello, at New York University's then-named School of Commerce, Accounts, and Finance. These four undergraduate students were determined to start an inclusive fraternity for business majors and one that would prosper knowledge for the betterment of the study of business at the time.

In 1975, Delta Sigma Pi began to initiate women into the fraternity, becoming the nation's first co-ed business fraternity which was unprecedented before. This was a clear reflection of the values of inclusiveness the fraternity was founded upon and continues to hold. Since the fraternity’s beginnings in the fall of 1907, we now have a membership of over 271,000 initiates with a total of 296 collegiate chapters across the country of all genders, cultural and religious backgrounds, and upbringings.

"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."

OUR CHAPTER

The Pi Psi Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi is located at The City University of New York - Baruch College, and was founded on October 23rd, 2010. We are Baruch College’s largest and oldest co-ed professional business fraternity. At the time of our inception, we became the 271st chapter of Delta Sigma Pi with a total of 56 initiates.

We were founded on our three pillars of professionalism, brotherhood, and community service. Throughout the semester, we hold professional events on campus to help all students on campus get more exposure to what many business majors can mean reflected into career paths. Our goal is to give more opportunities for young and aspiring professionals to network with professionals who have been in their shoes. We also hold fundraising events to be donated to the national initiative voted for the semester and participate in advocacy events throughout New York City. It is no wonder that when our brothers gather for the same goals and values that we are one united family.

As of fall 2018, we have a total of 252 brothers with 52 active members. We all come from a variety of different business majors and joined Delta Sigma Pi with the intent to develop into aspiring young professionals who would also go on to led and hold the ideals and values reflected in our community.
