In 1922, six nurses founded Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, today known as Sigma, at the Indiana University Training School for Nurses, which is now the Indiana University School of Nursing. From these six founding members, this international organization has grown to include more that 500 chapter with more than 135,000 active members in over 90 countries around the world. Sigma Theta Tau International is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. The Capstone College of Nursing Honor Society was established in 1979 as a prerequisite for the 1982 chartering of the local Epsilon Omega Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International.

Mission:
Advancing word health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service.
