Alpha Kappa Delta

Alpha Kappa Delta is the International Sociology Honor Society. Founded in 1920 at the University of Southern California by Dr. E. S. Bogardus, Alpha Kappa Delta is an integral part of many Sociology programs and is proud to acknowledge that in the past eight decades, over 80,000 scholars have been initiated into the Society. More than 490 chapters have been chartered in the United States, Canada, China, Finland, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Singapore. The purpose of the honor society is to promote scholarship and fellowship for students, both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. Sociology Majors who rank in the top 35% of their graduating class, and achieve a distinctive GPA in their Sociology classes, are chosen for membership to Vassar’s chapter: Alpha Tau.
