Sigma Tau Delta is the International English Honor Society with over 750 active chapters located in Europe, the Caribbean, and the United States; more than 1,000 faculty sponsors; and approximately 8,500 members inducted annually. The Alpha Zeta Iota chapter at Chapman University was founded in 1996.
Sigma Tau Delta's central purpose is to confer distinction upon students of the English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies. Sigma Tau Delta also recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature.
Sigma Tau Delta is more than just another college club. It is a unique entity that opens the doors of opportunity for its members and facilitates academic, professional, and personal growth with workshops. It also serves as a voice for English majors and minors within the department.
