Theta Chapter of Delta Gamma is pleased to announce that it has been offered a unique opportunity to make a permanent impact on Indiana University and its students by establishing a lectureship program, the Delta Gamma Lectureship in Values and Ethics.

Focusing on the values of ethical conduct in all life’s settings, the Lectureship will bring nationally known speakers to campus who will illuminate and define standards in the character, lives, and practices for all professions.

In 1990, Dorothy (a DG alumna from the Akron chapter) and Paul Martin began the Delta Gamma Lectureships in Values and Ethics in conjunction with the Delta Gamma Foundation. The Martins challenged chapters across the country to begin lectureships on their campuses. Grants of $50,000 each were given by the Martins to be matched by the chapters and local alumnae. Currently 16 chapters have established Delta Gamma Lectureships across the country. The Martins also challenged other individuals to come forward to provide the $50,000 grants.

Amy Carlson Wilson, Theta Chapter '96, and her husband, Mark, a leading PGA Tour golfer, have generously come forward to support Theta Chapter's Lectureship. Amy has also been named Chairman of the Lectureship in Values and Ethics by the Delta Gamma Chapter at Indiana University.

In 2010, the IU Foundation awarded the chapter $10,000 for the Lectureship for its exemplifying philanthropy on campus. The chapter has initiated special events, such as a jewelry sale and a denim sale, throughout the year to generate funding for the lectureship.

This year, in 2017, we are pleased to announce that Ibtihaj Muhammad will be speaking at the Delta Gamma, Theta Chapter lectureship event. This event will take place on the night of September 18th. Tickets are available at the event inside the Indiana Memorial Union.
