Founded on the campus of Howard University in Washington, DC in 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha is the world’s oldest Greek-letter organization established by African American college-trained women.  We were incorporated in 1913 to ensure perpetuity and are formally known as Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated. Today, Alpha Kappa Alpha has over 260,000 members  in 985 chapters worldwide. Members are inducted at the undergraduate level (while attending college) or at the graduate (alumni) level by invitation only. Chapters are geographically divided into 10 regions, reporting each to a Regional Director. Alpha Kappa Alpha is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois.

In 2008, Alpha Kappa Alpha celebrated it’s Centennial year, with over 25,000 members converging upon Washington, DC. A week-long of events and business meetings held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center included a Centennial March on Capitol Hill and shattered the world record for the  largest silver-level sit-down dinner.

Our current International President (2014-2018) is Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson. For more information about the Sorority and its program, please visit our International Website: http://www.aka1908.com
