Alpha Kappa Delta Phi

Alpha Kappa Delta Phi

alpha Kappa Delta Phi (αΚΔΦ) (also known as aKDPhi) is the largest Asian-American interest sorority. It was founded at the University of California, Berkeley in the Fall of 1989.


alpha Kappa Delta Phi was established at the University of California at Berkeley in the Spring of 1990 and was recognized by the College Panhellenic Association on February 7, 1990. The founding sisters - Susan Kim, Fannie Pon, Jill Yoshimura, and Reina Yuan - 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 love and generosity that each member had for the organization was instrumental to the growth of alpha Kappa Delta Phi's reputation as a sorority, as well as to the forging of unbreakable friendships. The sisterhood has since then spread to prominent university campuses across the country. To meet the needs of the growing sisterhood, the National Board of alpha Kappa Delta Phi was established in May 1993 at the National Convention in Santa Barbara, California.

To continue the sisterhood after graduation, the National Alumnae Board of alpha Kappa Delta Phi was established in the Fall of 2002 under the initiation of the National Board Alumnae Chair, Sophia Yen, UC Berkeley alumna. The 2002-2003 National Alumnae Board then set the foundation for the establishment of the National Alumnae Association.

The sisters of alpha Kappa Delta Phi Sorority, Inc. celebrate four major dates/periods in the calendar year. * January 31: aKDPhi Nationwide Violence Awareness Day and Valerie Zavala Remembrance Day * February 7: aKDPhi Nationwide Founder's Day * April 7: aKDPhi Nationwide Asian American Cultural Awareness Day * October: aKDPhi Nationwide Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Each day, the 44 chapters across the nation host workshops, fundraisers, events, and informational booths to further educate their university and community.

It is the sincere wish of the founding sisters and the charter class that alpha Kappa Delta Phi continue to promote Asian Awareness in the community and leadership opportunities for women by providing each women with the resources, unique sisterly support and understanding to achieve her goals in life.


alpha Kappa Delta Phi have raised awareness about breast cancer and to encourage early detection of breast cancer. They started the campaign in 1998. In 2003-2004, the sorority raised over $25,000 for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. 27 chapters participated in the Race for the Cure, and hosted a Breast Cancer Awareness forum, workshop, or informational booth on their campus. In 2006, the sorority raised over $30,000 as a national organization for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation with nearly 100% of its chapters participating and volunteering in races around the nation, and hosting Breast Cancer Awareness banquets, information sessions, workshops, and discussion groups. Throughout the rest of the year, sisters from chapters around the country continue to increase campus and community awareness to the dangers of Breast Cancer.
