Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity

About ΣΛΒ

Sigma Lambda Beta International Fraternity is a historically Latino-based social fraternity that was founded in 1986 at the University of Iowa based on cultural understanding and wisdom. Most noteworthy is that 16 of the 18 founders were of Hispanic-Latino origin/descent.

We believe in the ideals of fairness, opportunity, and equality of all men without regard to their race, culture, or ethnic background. Our biggest goal is to see that all of society can realize the importance of these three ideals. In order to achieve this goal, we all strive to model these behaviors and present ourselves in a gentlemanly and educated fashion.

Our Mission

To nurture and further a dynamic values-based environment which utilizes our historically Latino-based fraternity as a catalyst to better serve the needs and wants of all people.

Our Principles

Brotherhood, Scholarship, Culture Awareness, and Community Service
