Our History

Inspired to achieve professional and defeat the stereotypes and prejudices faced by Muslim, Samira Maddox and her friends came together to form Mu Delta Alpha in 2014 at the University of Texas at Dallas as “Muslimahs for Change”. At the time, these founders wanted to support the young Muslim girls who’s potential was being suppressed by the foreign cultures brought by immigrant parents and American Stereotypes. Over time, as the organization gained attention, the purpose behind the organization expanded. Today, Mu Delta Alpha stands to support all women, regardless of race or religion, and raises it’s hands high so all women can break the glass ceiling with their own two hands and reach their ultimate goals.

In the Fall of 2016, MDA established its Alpha Chapter at the University of Texas at Dallas with it’s first pledge class.

In the Fall of 2017, as we expanded to our Beta Chapter at the University of Texas at Austin and Gamma Chapter at the University of North Texas.
