A Way of Their Own: Black Greek Organizations at UNO
Stop 2 of 6 of the "A Space of Their Own Color: Black Greek Letter Organizations at UNO" Tour.
Black Greek letter organizations at UNO play an essential role for African American students as they do across the nation. Black Greek organizations provide a safe space for African Americans where communal bonds form, perform service and activism for the African American community and foster connections with the campus and its resources.
Services rendered by Black Greek organizations encourage the academic success of African Americans and function as a method of resistance against the hostilities African American students face.
Eight Black Greek organizations have chartered chapters at UNO, including:
Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc. (Gamma Pi, rechartered 2006 as Rho Delta)
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. (Eta Eta ,1973)
