BETA CHAPTER - OVER 100 YEARS OF SERVICE
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated, Beta Chapter, welcomes you to our website. As the second oldest chapter in the sorority, chartered Wednesday, October 8, 1913, we have a long legacy in Chicago of providing “Service to All Mankind.” As a city-wide chapter encompassing five schools: University of Chicago, Loyola University Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago, Columbia College Chicago, and Roosevelt University, we are committed to addressing the needs of our campuses and the Chicago community, and serving as role models for girls and young women. We hope that this website provides you with any and all information to learn more about us and how to support our programs and service events.
Alpha Kappa Alpha’s mission is 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.”
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.
