"Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated had its humble beginnings as the vision of nine    college students on the campus of Howard University in 1908. Since then, the sorority has    flourished into a globally-impactful organization of over 283,000 college-trained members,  bound by the bonds of sisterhood and empowered by a commitment to servant-leadership that is  both domestic and international in its scope. 


     As Alpha Kappa Alpha has grown, it has maintained its focus in two key arenas: the lifelong    personal and professional development of each of its members; and galvanizing its membership  into an organization of respected power and influence, consistently at the forefront of effective  advocacy and social change that results in equality and equity for all citizens of the world."
