Diversity Leadership Conference

Have you ever been so passionate about at cause the thought of it makes you want to do cartwheels in the very spot you stand? This idea grazes the excitement Cynthia Sorto has about participating in the Diversity Conference. She was first invited to participate last year in New Orleans, LA, and has since been invited back to the 2009 Conference in Denver, CO. We are all so proud of her! The success of the future depends on women (and men) like Cynthia that have a passion they do not merely speak about, but put into action. Keep up the great work!

Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC)
SDLC is a multiracial, multicultural gathering of upper school student leaders (grades 9—12) from around the country. SDLC focuses on self reflecting, forming allies, and building community. Led by a diverse team of trained adult and peer facilitators, participants will develop effective cross-cultural communication skills, better understand the nature and development of effective strategies for social justice, practice expression through the arts, and learn networking principles and strategies. In addition to large group sessions, SDLC “family groups” and “home groups” allow for intense dialogue and sharing. SDLC and PoCC participants also interact in regional and intergenerational dialogue sessions


About CUS - Alpha Zeta Chapter

Picture In the Spring of 2002 a group of women realized their common want and need for an organization that was something greater than what already existed at Texas Christian University; thus leading to the beginning of a concept that would turn out to have extraordinary outcomes. After many weeks of researching different sororities they came upon Corazones Unidos Siempre Chi Upsilon Sigma National Latin Sorority, Incorporated and upon this discovery the searching ended. The women wanted an organization that embodied sisterhood, education, and community service. This and much more was exemplified by Chi Upsilon Sigma. The two devoted women, Eugenia Redondo and Lisa Marie Cano, established the Alpha Zeta Colony at TCU on Sunday, April 13, 2003. Alpha Zeta Colony received Chapter recognition on April 11, 2005. The women of Alpha Zeta dedicate their efforts to promote the sorority’s motto, “Wisdom through Education” as well as educate the public on social, political, cultural, and educational issues. As Alpha Zeta continues to grow with women who are not content to accept an ordinary life, who are willing to make a difference and who are not afraid to voice their opinion, the Light of CUS will never grow dim.
