Delta Sigma Pi is a professional fraternity organized to foster the study of business in universities; to encourage scholarship, social activity and the association of students for their mutual advancement by research and practice; to promote closer affiliation between the commercial world and students of commerce, and to further a higher standard of commercial ethics and culture and the civic and commercial welfare of the community.
Delta Sigma Pi was founded in 1907 at New York University: School of Commerce, Accounts and Finance by Harold Valentine Jacobs, Alexander Frank Makay, Alfred Moysello and Henry Albert Tienken. Today, coast to coast, more than 250 chapters and over 200,000 members support the goals and ideals of the Fraternity.
The "SVA" is a group of students who are committed to service to the community. SVA members participate in approximately 3-5 service events per month. They are dedicated to the University’s core values of service. SVA not only serves the RWU community but the surrounding communities as well.
Our mission statement is to serve the local community, to further the education of RWU's future teachers through professional experiences and to develop camaraderie between the RWU School of Education students (and Faculty.)
To provide enjoyable, educational experience and act as a resource to foster student leadership within our community.

The Newman Club enriches the quality of life on the Roger Williams campus through community service-oriented programs, combined with spiritual, intellectual and social activities. The club creates an environment in which members of the University community may explore their relationship with God and the Christian community through liturgy, scriptural reflection, community action and fun.
The Environmental and Animal Rights Club has been consistantly involved in community service activities. The following are service projects that they have completed recently:
They volunteered at the Barrington Land Conservation Trust for their "Winter Wonderland Workout" at Pic-Wil Nature Preserve. They worked together to remove some large debris (tires, pallets, etc) left behind from farming activities. They also trimmed trails, took out invasive plants and picked up litter and tires washed up along side the property.
They also participated in the RWU Beach Clean Up. They got together to pick up trash at the bottom of Old Ferry, separating out the recyclables and the trash. They plan on doing another one soon.
They also volunteered for Adopt A Turkey. They donate money to sponsor a (live) turkey every Thanksgiving at the Farm Sanctuary in upstate New York.
Finally, they participated in Cats on Campus. "We monitor and maintain feeding the cats on campus with the local organization PawsWatch. In the last three years, we have gotten materials donated and houses and feeding stations built for five different areas on campus." The group also provides educational seminars about the cats on campus.
