Alpha Gamma Delta is lifelong sisterhood. A friendship that you truly cannot understand from looking from the outside in.  What makes our chapter so strong is the diversity among our members. Although we may be different in our interests and involvement across both the University of Manitoba and University of Winnipeg campus’, the common bonds that we share tying our sisterhood together are the values and morals by which we live by.  We hope to support lifelong learning, promote the value of a higher education, prepare our members to contribute to their community, and advocate lifetime involvement in Alpha Gamma Delta.

Alpha Gamma Delta was officially founded on May 30, 1904 at the home of Dr. Wellesley Perry Coddington, a professor at Syracuse University who was instrumental in the early development of Alpha Gamma Delta. Each of the Fraternity’s 11 founders were progressive women who selflessly contributed to the foundation and growth of Alpha Gamma Delta. Since the founding, collegiate chapters have been installed at more than 180 colleges and universities across North America and more than 155,000 women have become Alpha Gam sisters. Guided by the Alpha Gamma Delta Purpose, Alpha Gamma Deltas strive to attain a higher standard, thereby improving their lives, the lives of those around them and the communities in which they live. Together, we continually work to inspire the woman and impact the world.

The Alpha Gamma Delta Experience is an innovative educational program offered to the Fraternity collegiate members, is designed to provide all members of Alpha Gamma Delta with the tools necessary to become strong, progressive women who make a difference in their communities and in the world. The program was developed with a unique focus on our Purpose. Composed of three separate components, the Alpha Gamma Delta Experience recognizes the changing needs of collegiate members during their progression through university life.
