Continuing the legacy of promoting higher education…
Founded in 1908 at Howard University, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® is the oldest Greek letter organization established in America by African American college educated women. Since its founding, the sorority has flourished into a globally impactful organization of over 270,000 college trained members bound by the bond of sisterhood and empowered by the commitment to servant-leadership that is both domestic and international in its scope. The dynamic group of women who organized the Sorority were concerned about the social issues of their time. One generation removed from slavery, these young women understood the privilege that they had to pursue their education at a highly respected institution. With this opportunity, these women used their college experiences to address the challenges in their community.

We are dedicated to continuing Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated's® legacy in promoting high scholastic and ethical standards through service and scholarship.
