The Chi Alpha Delta Sorority is the first Asian American sorority in the United States. Chi Alpha Delta was organized in May
1928 by fourteen charter members, under the guidance of Helen Matthewson Laughlin, Dean of Women (1919-1946). The sorority's
founding mission was to promote friendships, cooperation, and social activities among Japanese women students at UCLA. The
Chi Alpha Delta Sorority was officially recognized by UCLA on April 5, 1929 and was granted full university privileges in
1962. The sorority is now open to all women students.
