Summary

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.  Since
then we have expanded from coast to coast to become the largest growing
latino-based fraternity

 

Mission

Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity Inc. is committed to
developing individuals to their fullest potential in order to help serve
the needs and wants of our people. As members, Brothers learn to "open
their eyes" to see the possibilities that are open to all students, to
share thoughts and ideas, and to recognize the potential that we, as a
united front have, enabling us to keep our shared values alive and
working.
