Since the chapter's inception, the Xi Tau Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated has proudly served Cambridge and surrounding communities. Committed to Sisterhood, Scholarship, and Service, the sophisticated women of Xi Tau are actively engaged in public service initiatives, social action programming, and political reform.

Xi Tau Deltas are innovative and creative women, who never rest upon tradition, but continue, in the manner of our noble sorority's distinguished history, impacting the lives of African Americans. These women have hailed from the following eight schools on the chapter's original charter: Babson College, Bentley University, Brandeis University, Harvard University, Lesley University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, and Wellesley College.

Today, our charter is currently comprised of the following schools:

Bentley University
Tufts University
Wellesley College


Women of Accomplishment, Xi Tau Deltas continue to achieve academic excellence, make strides in our chosen career fields, and remain sisters to each other. Among our ranks are dozens of Harvard Business School graduates, several doctors, lawyers & judges, professors, women of the cloth, accomplished authors, community leaders, two Rhode Scholars, and too many prestigious scholarship recipients to name.
