About Mu Psi Omega
Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® was founded on a mission comprised of five basic tenets that have remained unchanged since the sorority’s inception more than a century ago. 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".
The small group of women who founded Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority at the turn of the last century were conscious of their privileged position as college-trained women of color just one generation removed from slavery. But at the same time, they were sensitive to the needs and struggles of the less fortunate in underserved communities in their hometowns and in other environs beyond their travels who were in need of goods, services and opportunities beyond their reach. The young collegians’ commitment to scholarship, leadership, civic engagement and public service, woven together by the bonds of lifelong sisterhood, formed the bedrock of the rich legacy of servant-leadership that epitomizes the sorority to this day. And the global reach of its programs, laser-focused on the health, wealth, family, education, human rights and parity issues that concern its constituents, ensures the relevance of the organization into perpetuity.
The Mu Psi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® was chartered on November 24, 1979. Our membership represents various levels of professional, educational and social backgrounds. It is this diversity that makes our chapter rich in history, experience and enthusiasm.
For more than 40 years, we have given back to the military and German communities by providing programs that focus on the local families, economic empowerment, environmental stewardship, education, and health.
We are committed to the Sorority's goal to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards, to promote unity and friendship among college women, to study and 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.
We are also proud to provide scholarship opportunities through our fundraising events. As we build upon our strong foundation, we will continue to be serious about service for a greater Sisterhood.
