As the first independent multicultural collegiate sorority and fraternity for all online accredited colleges, universities, and global campuses including trade schools, technical, and community colleges, Sigma Chi Psi Sorority and Gamma Sigma Gamma Fraternity are dedicated to empowering collegiate women and men with academic excellence, sisterhood and brotherhood, and opportunities for connection through philanthropic service.
As privately-owned and operated non-profit organizations, Sigma Chi Psi Sorority and Gamma Sigma Gamma Fraternity began as an ambitious concept in 2019 before the Covid-19 pandemic briefly forced the postponement of their launch. In late 2020 during a period of tremendous uncertainty, the Sorority and Fraternity founders were not only able to see their dreams come to fruition, but they also defied the odds by attracting new members across the nation from all walks of life. Collectively they began to form a community of individuals who shared the common experience of pursuing their higher education in a virtual format.
Their very first chapter was established in Baltimore, MD, on October 14th, 2020 with ambitious plans for national and global expansion in the near future. Honored to welcome the renowned Trina E. Braxton as their first 2021 honorary member following the obtainment of her Bachelor's degree online, Sigma Chi Psi Sorority and Gamma Sigma Gamma Fraternity quickly solidified their place as thought-leaders in the online higher education sector.
With a commitment to inclusivity, academic excellence, and service, Sigma Chi Psi Sorority and Gamma Sigma Gamma Fraternity provide a unique opportunity to bridge the social, cultural, and campus involvement gaps for individuals who are tenaciously pursuing a better future by attending college online.

In addition to nurturing the personal and professional development of its members through networking opportunities, skill-building workshops, 2nd language lessons, and interactive retreats, Sigma Chi Psi Sorority and Gamma Sigma Gamma Fraternity are also deeply committed to uplifting their surrounding communities. This effort is accomplished through service initiatives and charitable events which serve to further their mission of building everlasting bonds between their respective Sorority and Fraternity members while establishing a foundation of lifelong friendships. A strategic partnership with Gift of Life Inc., the world's largest and most diverse marrow registry, is one way in which Sigma Chi Psi Sorority and Gamma Sigma Gamma Fraternity are able to make a life-saving impact and give back to those in need.
As they seek to build their membership capacity and grow their organizations in a productive way, Sigma Chi Psi Sorority and Gamma Sigma Gamma Fraternity will continue to provide a supportive network and invaluable experience for all of their members.
