Sigma Theta Tau began at Kent State University in 1985 as the School of Nursing Honors Organization, with the formation of a constitution and admission requirements modeled after those established by Sigma Theta Tau. The Nursing Honors Organization was accepted as a Sigma Theta Tau Chapter in November, 1979. The first members were inducted into the new Delta Xi Chapter in the spring of 1980. Delta Xi now has more than 1800 active members.
