On January 13, 1974, a group of women met with representatives of Florida Technological University (UCF’s former name) to determine which national Black sorority to affiliate with. By a majority vote meeting, attendees decided they would affiliate with Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated.

On May 16, 1975, the Mu Iota Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. was chartered as the FIRST BLACK GREEK LETTERED ORGANIZATION of any kind on FTU’s campus.

Thanks to eleven illustrious women, who served the campus and the community diligently as social activists, cultural philanthropists, and overall determined and effective leaders, Mu Iota has since established itself as a model organization.
