Theta Phi Alpha

‌Mission and Values

The mission of Theta Phi Alpha is to create close comradeship to advance educational, social and philanthropic interests and leadership training; to encourage spiritual development and adherence to the highest moral standards; and to promote lifelong bonds of friendship.


Theta Phi Alpha was founded at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor in 1912. Our founders believed that  that there should be some kind of home life provided for the young Catholic women who attended the University and they realized that a sorority offered such society, friendship, and atmosphere. By joining together, they provided support and friendship to one another, to meet the challenges that they faced and to create an organization that would enable future generations to share that sisterhood. We recognize the contributions of the sisters who have gone before us and acknowledge that, without them, our experience today would be very different.
