No chapter, student or alumnus shall conduct nor condone hazing activities or any other activities which are not consistent with academic achievement, fraternal law, ritual or policy or the regulations and policies of the educational institution or applicable state law.
Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc. indisputably prohibits any acts of hazing and requires Hermanas to reports such incidents.

Although our undergraduate chapters provide sisterhood and support to our members, their reach extends beyond the women who are a part of our Hermandad. Our undergraduate chapters were founded with the intention of creating a bridge between all women committed to seeking the political and social advancement of underrepresented populations. As an organization dedicated to the advancement of women and the Latino community it is our responsibility provide the necessary encouragement and strength that our communities need. Our undergraduate chapters therefore serve as a venue for Hermanas to perform service to the community, while also promoting academic achievement, and cultural enrichment.
For information on starting a chapter at your school, contact our Director of Expansion.
Our Graduate/Professional Chapters (GPC) give our Hermanas an outlet to stay involved with the sorority once they have completed their undergraduate degrees. Membership in our organization is a lifelong commitment. GPC’s serve our members as they enter new phases in life, supporting each other as we grow. These chapters are vehicles for empowerment, exerting political influence, social action and economic development in the communities we serve. In addition, our GPC’s give graduate students and professional women an opportunity to join the organization. If you’re interested in starting a GPC in your city, please contact our Director of Graduate Affairs.
