Founded in 1908 on the campus of Howard University, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated (AKA) is the oldest Greek-lettered community service organization established by African-American college-educated women. Today, the sorority is comprised of more than 290,000 distinguished women in graduate and undergraduate chapters. These women uphold Alpha Kappa Alpha’s mission to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college women, to study and help alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve their social stature, to maintain a progressive interest in college life, and to be of “Service to All Mankind.”
On May 6, 1950, under the dedicated leadership of Marjorie Borders, the Epsilon Omicron Omega chapter was chartered. Today, the members of Connecticut’s first graduate chapter can be found serving the greater Hartford community by partnering with local organizations such as Co-Opportunity, Inc. and Knox Park Foundation and serving local organizations such as My Sister’s Place, YWCA Hartford, Union Baptist Church Breakfast Program, St. Peter’s Retreat, and a host of other local community groups.
