SLU highly prides itself as an organization of diverse college-educated (collegiate) and professional women dedicated to uplifting traditionally marginalized groups, especially Latinos and women, by serving as a voice and means for empowerment. Since 1987, SLU has been an outlet for professional development and personal growth to its members and serving constituents. The Sorority's impact can be seen in the outstanding accomplishments of their Hermanas, the young women they have mentored through the LADYS and PEARLS programs, and through the lives of all the people the Sorority has touched via their many literacy initiatives. Thus, proving to colleges and communities that women of color can make a difference.
Sigma Lambda Upsilon has a passion for leading and developing underprivileged communities through the Sorority's goals of academic excellence, leadership, sisterhood, cultural enrichment, and service to the community and campus. It is evident that the Sorority's undergraduate and Graduate/Professional chapters challenge the status quo through programming initiatives that are both exemplary and unique. Sigma Lambda Upsilon's impenetrable bond and relentless commitment to one another transcends time, which is why the Sorority considers their sisterhood-Hermandad- lasting Hasta La Muerte! SLU continues to carry out the Sorority's ideals and achieve the organization's goals with a commitment to each other, the campuses the Sorority serves, and the communities the organization works in every day.
