About Us


Leading Women

Kappa Alpha Theta was founded in 1870 at Indiana Asbury College as the first Greek letter fraternity for women. Our purpose is the intellectual ambition of the Fraternity and to attain the highest scholarship. The social aim of the Fraternity shall be to exercise the widest influence for good. The moral aim of the Fraternity shall be the standard of love.  Our mission is to nurture each member throughout her college and alumna experience and to offer a lifelong opportunity for social, intellectual, and moral growth as she meets the higher and broader demands of mature life. There are over 130 college chapters at colleges and universities across the United States and Canada with over 250,000 initiated members. 

Here at Auburn University we aspire to be "leading women" in all aspects of our life as we work to attain the widest influence of good.
