Alpha Kappa Delta

Members of Alpha Kappa Delta, an international sociology honor society, are selected on the basis of superior scholarship and serious interest in sociology. The goal of Alpha Kappa Delta is to promote human welfare through the association of a fellowship group interested in developing scientific knowledge that may be applied to the solution of social problems. The motto of the society is "to study humankind for the purpose of service."

Alpha Kappa Delta was established in 1920 and has grown rapidly. There are now chapters in all parts of the United States and several other countries. Any junior or senior with a major in sociology and a B + or better grade-point average is eligible for membership. Students who qualify for membership will be contacted during the spring semester and invited to become a member of Bradley’s Xi chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta.

As a member of Alpha Kappa Delta, you will receive a paid-up lifetime membership in the society; a one-year subscription to Sociological Inquiry, the official journal of this international honor society; a certificate of membership; and the opportunity to participate in a variety of national, regional and local activities of the society. For additional information about the benefits of membership in Alpha Kappa Delta, please view the society’s homepage.
