Transcript of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc.

Theta Sigma Chapter
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc
On January 15, 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority became the first Greek-lettered organization established in the United States by and for Black women. Her roots date back to Howard University in Washington, DC where the idea of formation was conceived by Ethel Hedgeman Lyle of St. Louis, Missouri. She viewed the Sorority as an instrument for enriching the social and intellectual aspects of college life by providing mental stimulation through interaction with friends and associates.
Our Purpose
The purpose of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority is to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards; to promote unity and friendship among college women; to study and help alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve their social stature; to maintain a progressive interest in college life; and to be of service to ALL mankind.
