Dr. Condoleezza Rice joined Alpha Chi Omega at the Gamma Delta chapter at the University of Denver. Until her senior year, she was the only African American member of the chapter.

She earned a master's from the University of Notre Dame and a Ph.D. from the University of Denver’s Graduate School of International Studies. In 1993, she became Stanford University’s first woman provost and served in that position until 1999. In 2001, President George W. Bush appointed her national security advisor. Rice later was named the U.S. Secretary of State, the first black woman to serve in that capacity. A professor, consultant and author, she has won many awards. She is an articulate speaker, accomplished pianist and a football aficionado. She received Alpha Chi Omega's Award of Achievement in 1990.
