The chapter is a member of the Central Ohio Consortium of Sigma Theta Tau chapters that provides two CE programs a year. Our goal is to promote scholarship and leadership in Kappa Lambda members. Opportunities are available to donate your time and talents to those in need. See the upcoming event section for programs and activities of Kappa Lambda and the consortium and join us! All are welcome.
