Get Involved


Welcome to Sigma Delta Pi (¡Bienvenidos!)

Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, is a non-profit organization incorporated in the State of South Carolina, a member of the Association of College Honor Societies (which is a member of The Center for Academic Integrity), and affiliated with the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese. Founded at the University of California, Berkeley in 1919.

The Spanish honorary society awards their outstanding students annually for their accomplishments in the Spanish language - the purposes of the society are:

1. To honor those who attain excellence in the study of the Spanish language and in the study of the literature and culture of the Spanish-speaking peoples;
2. To honor those who have made the Hispanic contributions to modern culture better known in the English-speaking world;
3. To encourage college and university students to acquire a greater interest in and a deeper understanding of Hispanic culture;
4. To foster friendly relations and mutual respect between the nations of Hispanic speech and those of English speech;
5. To serve its membership in ways which will contribute to the attainment of the goals and ideals of the society.

President for the chapter at Hope is Prof. Melissa Mulder
