Welcome to your Kappa Lambda Chapter website!
Kappa Lambda was chartered at Otterbein University in April 1988 as the 249th chapter of Sigma Theta Tau. We celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2013. The chapter is a member of the Central Ohio Consortium of Sigma Theta Tau chapters that provides two CE programs a year. See the news and events for programs and activities of Kappa Lambda and the consortium. We would like you to take part in these events and interact with members of the consortium.
