Curry College's Chapter, Theta at Large, began in 1953 when it was chartered as only the seventh Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau. A group of nurses attending Boston University set out to establish an organization that would represent the best of what nursing offered in this part of the world. Boston University would stand tall for the ensuing 37 years, as the "institution of record" for our Chapter, until in 1990 when we were re-chartered to include Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts and Simmons College in Boston - thereby establishing our "at-large" distinction.

Today, we have over 650 active members linked among three unique institutions. Theta at Large has many reasons to be proud as we forge into the new millennium. We are active in supporting local nursing scholars through our ongoing research and academic awards program. Our fall and spring programs offer members an opportunity to connect with each other and engage in scholarly educational discourse. We are thrilled to routinely send members to destinations around this country and abroad, to leadership conferences, academic events, member forums and the biennial convention during which representatives from all chapters from around the world gather.
