Welcomes Omega Kappa Graduate Chapter in the Southern New England Region

Chi Upsilon Sigma officially welcomes its newest graduate chapter, Omega Kappa

New York, NY (10/18/13) – Chi Upsilon Sigma continues to establish graduate chapters to better serve our undergraduate members, expansion initiatives, and provide alumnae the opportunity to flourish and contribute to their communities.

Chartered by six professional women, Grace Navarrete, Janelle Kardell, Claudia Bernedo, Tenika Ortiz, Patricia DeJesus and Ivonne Lopez, the Omega Kappa chapter will serve the Southern New England region including Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts. These women aspire to serve as a support system for local undergraduate chapters and expansion schools in the area. Aside from providing a path for graduate transition, they plan to participate in community service, contribute to the sorority’s goals and create more opportunities for alumnae involvement.

These women wish to contribute to the organization’s values by participating in community services, co-sponsoring events, and helping facilitate presentations for local undergraduate and expansion schools. Aside from providing a path for alumnae involvement, they plan to contribute to the sorority’s AIM program, take on leadership roles and motivate alumnae to contribute to local initiatives. Chi Upsilon Sigma looks forward to the future achievements of our active alumnae who continue to contribute to the organization.


Chi Upsilon Sigma has been in existence since April 29, 1980, incepted on the New Brunswick Campus of Rutgers – the State University of New Jersey. Our founders are 7 Latinas who had the desire to create an organization to promote leadership among the Latino community and our membership has since grown to incorporate women of all ethnicities. Chi Upsilon Sigma has devoted itself to increasing awareness amongst ourselves, and our communities about important political, social, cultural, and educational issues and servicing the communities around us.
