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®(AKA) is proud of her 1,024 chapters and over 300,000 initiated members. Membership is by invitation only. If you have a bachelor or advanced degree(s) from an accredited 4-year college or university, membership is obtained through a graduate chapter. An active graduate chapter will extend an authorized and written membership letter of invitation upon approval of the official Membership Intake Process to prospective members.
