Sigma Lambda Beta Fraternity Inc.
"Opportunity for Wisdom, Wisdom for Culture"

Background

Sigma Lambda Beta Fraternity is a social fraternity that was founded in 1986 at the University of Iowa. It is based on cultural understanding and wisdom. Most noteworthy is that 18 men of whom 16 were of Latin American or Hispanic origin/descent founded Sigma Lambda Beta.

We believe in the principles of fairness, opportunity, and in the equality of all men no matter what their race, culture, or ethnicity. Our biggest goal is to see that all of society can realize the importance of these three principles. In order to achieve this goal we all strive to model these behaviors and present ourselves in a gentlemanly and educated fashion.

Lambda Chapter at the University of Colorado

The Lambda Chapter of Sigma Lambda Beta has been making a difference on our campus and in our community for the past 12 years. Our legacy of leadership will continue to have a positive impact now and into the future. We believe and uphold the high ideals of our beloved brotherhood. Here at CU and across the nation we are a family. This is not like any other student group on campus. It is a family in which our brotherhood comes first. This chapter does many community service projects and cultural awareness events for the campus and the boulder community. Sigma Lambda Beta plays an important role on the University of Colorado campus, especially the Latino male population. As we work our best to maintain our family to promote the networking necessary for young men to have a quality college experience. We, as a student of color organization on campus, work hard to support other student groups in our quest for multi-cultural recruitment to the University, thus, creating a great network and relationship with other students of color organizations on campus.
