alpha Kappa Delta Phi is an international Asian-interest sorority with 55 chapters located at numerous universities across the United States and in Canada. Thousands of undergraduate and alumnae sisters support the rapidly growing network of strong and successful women in the organization. alpha Kappa Delta Phi is part of the National APIA Panhellenic Association (NAPA), which it helped charter in 2006.

National History

alpha Kappa Delta Phi was established at the University of California at Berkeley in the fall of 1989 and recognized by the College Panhellenic Association on February 7, 1990. The founding sisters dedicated themselves to establishing a strong and lasting organization, which would provide Asian American women the opportunity to participate in the Greek system. Soon after being recognized by the College Panhellenic Association, the founding sisters brought together a diverse group of women who shared with them the goals of sisterhood, scholarship and leadership. These ideals were to later set the foundation for alpha Kappa Delta Phi's purpose.

The sisterhood has since then spread to prominent university campuses, with 53 chapters in the country and one located in Toronto, Canada, making us the first and only international, Asian-interest sorority. It is the sincere wish of the founding sisters that alpha Kappa Delta Phi continue to promote Asian Awareness in the community and leadership for women by providing each woman with the resources, unique sisterly support and understanding to achieve her goals in life.

Baylor Chapter History

alpha Kappa Delta Phi was established in the fall of 1997 at Baylor University. Since then, alpha Kappa Delta Phi has grown into one of the largest multicultural sorority on campus and remained the only Asian interest sorority. The sisters of alpha Kappa Delta Phi at Baylor University do their utmost to be the most engaged and active through service, leadership and academics on campus and in the Waco community, establishing a strong Asian root within the Baylor and Waco communities.
