Organization Facts: 

The Alpha Chapter of Sigma Beta Rho was founded on August 16, 1996 at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. The founders came together with a vision of an organization for the betterment and preservation of South Asians in the United States. They envisioned a Greek-Lettered organization this extent in which membership would remain constant and growing and would facilitate involvement from its alumni members. They realized that in order for their vision to truly become a reality they needed to spread their principles and ideals to other college campuses and establish a nationwide network. August 22, 1998 witnessed the induction of several new members to Sigma Beta Rho Fraternity with whom brought the establishment of the Beta Chapter at the State University of New York at Binghamton. At this time eight men from three different universities would be given the status of founding fathers as they were the brothers who would establish the fraternity for years to come.

  • Mr. Saiful Khandker
  • Mr. Russell Abdullah
  • Mr. Rajan Dogra
  • Mr. Suman Ghosh
  • Mr. Shoor Kalam
  • Mr. Bonit Sharma
  • Mr. Neil Datta
  • Mr. Anuj Datta

These eight men established this fraternity to foster the ideals of Society, Brotherhood, and Remembrance amongst its members. They believed that through their bonds of brotherhood they would be able to establish an organization that would instill unity amongst its members, promote South Asian culture, and aid the greater community at large. They felt that the principles of Society, Brotherhood, and Remembrance would develop leaders from young men both as undergraduate students on their college campuses and as professionals in their lives upon graduation. These young men would serve as role models and mentors in their respective communities, break down barriers between different ethnic groups, and through their leadership would aid their communities in this country in attaining a better and brighter future than it would have had. It is to this end that the brothers of Sigma Beta Rho work so diligently towards to this day. All the brothers strive to uphold the ideals of Society, Brotherhood, and Remembrance so that one day our future may be a brighter one.
