Sigma Delta Pi - Upsilon Rho


 Sigma Delta Pi, the National Collegiate Hispanic Honor Society, honors those who demonstrate a love of Hispanic studies and outstanding academic achievement in that field. Upsilon Rho was established at Illinois Wesleyan University in 2000. We were a 2012 chapter grant winner to host a workshop for teachers of Latino high-school students and a 2010 recipient of the Premio Frida Kahlo for its outstanding website.
