The women have formed a Sorority Council to oversee sorority-wide initiatives and events.

Zeta Xi Delta
Zeta Xi Delta is a local sorority at Rhode Island College, founded in the summer of 2007. Our goal is to offer a sisterhood to young women and foster personal growth through friendship, philanthropy, and excellence in academics. Our main philanthropy, along with many others, is helping with breast cancer research. We have participated in the Making Strides Breast Cancer Research Walk in Roger Williams Park for the last five years.
Iota Phi Theta, Inc.
On September 19, 1963, at Morgan State College (now Morgan State University), 12 students founded what is now the nation's fifth largest, predominantly African-American social service fraternity: The Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Incorporated. Based upon their ages, heightened responsibilities, and increased level of maturity, this group had a slightly different perspective than the norm for college students. Many of the founders played an active role in the Civil Rights Movement. Iota Phi Theta, Inc. was founded on the development and perpetuation of Scholarship, Leadership, Citizenship, Fidelity, and Brotherhood among Men. The motto for Iota Phi Theta, Inc. is Building a Tradition, Not Resting Upon One. As Iota Phi Theta, Inc. continues to grow and strengthen, so will its commitment to make meaningful contributions to society in general, with particular emphasis in the African-American community.
Kappa Delta Phi Fraternity
Kappa Delta Phi is a national fraternity aiming to bring males of good character together to strengthen the bonds of brotherhood.
