"To investigate humanity for the purpose of service."

Alpha Kappa Delta is the International Honor Society dedicated to furthering the education of students majoring in Sociology. The purpose of this society is to promote an interest in the study of sociology and intellectual activities that will lead to improvement in the human condition. Alpha Kappa Delta was established in 1920 at the University of Southern California. Today, there are many chapters of AKD in the United States and other countries, and we are pleased to have an AKD presence here at SLU.

If you qualify to join AKD, your membership entitles you to a one-year subscription to Sociological Inquiry, the official journal of the International Honor Society, a certificate of membership, and participation in a variety of national, regional and local activities of the society.

If you would like more information on AKD membership through our department, please contact Dr. Scott Harris or Dr. Kathryn Kuhn.
