Lambda Tau Omega Sorority, Inc. (ΛΤΩ) is a multicultural sorority founded in 1988 at Montclair State College (now Montclair State University), by sixteen women who felt the need for a multicultural sorority at Montclair State College. Lambda Tau Omega is a founding member of the National Multicultural Greek Council (NMGC).


According to the organization's website, Lambda Tau Omega's primary missions are "uplift womyn of all social structures while striving towards excellence through their ideals and accomplishments"[1] and dedication to noble service with primary focus on the welfare of children.[2]


Lambda Tau Omega's main philanthropy is the welfare of children, but the sorority participates in many community service activities, including a Blue Ribbon Campaign, a Child Abuse Awareness campaign each April, and an AIDS Awareness campaign each December.
