The UConn Sociology Department is pleased to announce that we have been approved to establish the Kappa of Connecticut chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta under the direction of Matthew Hughey (chapter representative).
Alpha Kappa Delta: The International Sociology Honor Society
Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) is the International Sociology Honor Society. AKD was founded in 1920 at the University of Southern California by Dr. Emory S. Bogardus and became affiliated with the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) in 1967. AKD is also affiliated with the American Sociological Association (ASA).
Alpha Kappa Delta seeks to acknowledge and promote excellence in scholarship in the study of sociology, the research of social problems, and such other social and intellectual activities as will lead to improvement in the human condition.
Membership is open to undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty members from active chapters who meet the minimum standards. Currently, there are more than 130,000 members in Alpha Kappa Delta and over 670 chapters.
