Nine Howard University students were led by Ethel Hedgeman (Lyle) into forming a sisterhood in 1908. Five years later, Nellie Quander and her gallant and visionary associates contributed the added dimension of an international organization and perpetual membership.
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® is proud of her 1,024 chapters and nearly 300,000 members in more than 55 nations and all 50 states. Membership is by invitation only and is not solicited through our graduate chapter. Gamma Omega Omega hosts public events, such as forums, social activities, and fundraisers so that prospective members can become acquainted with chapter members and learn about service activities that we offer to local communities.
Alpha Kappa Alpha seeks women who will promote, uphold, and extend its policies and programs. In return the sorority is a conduit through which individuals can grow and develop, personally and professionally, while simultaneously providing “Service to All Mankind”.
