The Delta Gamma chapter at WSU is one of 11 chapters nationwide that holds the prestigious lectureship series funded by Akron Alumna Dorothy Garrett Martin. Martin donated funds for matching grants of $50,000 to begin a lectureship in values and ethics.
In 1994, the WSU chapter met the challenge of raising $50,000. The money was matched and placed in an endowed fund through the WSU Foundation. Interest earned from the fund pays for the lecture series.
