On January 15, 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated was founded on the campus of Howard University in Washington, D.C. We are the oldest Greek-lettered organization established by African-American college-educated women, and our continuous mission has been “service to all mankind” for over 112 years. With the leadership of our international president, Glenda Baskin Glover, we have embraced the 2018-2022 theme of “Exemplifying Excellence through Sustainable Service” as we continue the legacy and vision of our founders. We are also guided by the leadership of Mitzi Dease Paige, our South Eastern Regional Director.
