The Honor Society of Nursing, Sigma Theta Tau International
Was founded in 1922 by six nurses at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, now the Indiana University School of Nursing. Over the years, numerous chapters have formed across the United States and around the world. The founders chose the name from the Greek words Storgé, Tharsos and Timé meaning "Love," "Courage" and "Honor."
Zeta Mu Chapter-At-Large
In the late 1970's in San Diego, there was interest in establishing Sigma Theta Tau International chapters at the University of San Diego, Point Loma Nazarene University and at San Diego State University. Eventually, USD and PLNU would join to form the Zeta Mu Chapter-at-Large and SDSU would form the Gamma Gamma chapter.
