Sigma Kappa Delta’s central purpose is to confer distinction upon students of the English language and literature in undergraduate studies.

The MC Chapter, Zeta Epsilon, has been existence for three years. It was formed by English Program Chair Dr. Diane Allen in 2011.

Allen said, “Randy Rodriguez was the first president, and we started with only eight students, but the numbers have increased thanks to the excellent sponsorship of faculty members Stacy and Brendan Egan.”
