The History of Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity
Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity was founded in 2004 at the University of Houston by 4 young and ambitious men. Their goals was not only to establish their legacy on campus, but to enhance their collegiate life through networking and service. They became a founding member of the UH's Multicultural Greek Council (MGC) and has since remained in good standing with the MGC and the Student Life office.
In 2008, the University of Houston was granted Associate Chapter Status at the fraternity's National Convention in Tampa, Florida. Two years later, we earned the Tau Chapter designation by the National Executive Board at the National Brotherhood Retreat on South Padre Island, Texas, which was hosted by the University of Houston chapter.
This applies not just to accepting and celebrating the cultural, racial, and other differences that define our membership, but to an understanding of brotherhood beyond the ranks of our own organization – not just Greek unity, but humanity as a whole. This is imagined as an ideal for which we strive – to make a positive impact in and on the lives of others irrespective of difference.
To cultivate a global leadership network, founded in brotherhood, and impassioned by service to each other and our world.
