I am Dorothy Buckhanan Wilson, International President of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, the nation’s first sorority established by African American women, was launched more than a century ago at Howard University in Washington, D.C. Our track record of service, scholarship and sisterhood spans the globe through the work of its more than 265,000 members.

As we begin a new international program initiative, I invite you to explore our new website and a special message from me to learn more about our service targets, community service days, and our sisterhood.

Since 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority has implemented programs of service impacting countless lives in such key areas as Education, Health, the Family and Economics. The organization’s community impact and scope have expanded greatly as a result of these service initiatives.

The 2014-2018 Program theme is Launching New Dimensions of Service. Members of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, through its 986 local chapters, will have an opportunity to address community needs with programs in traditional and new target areas.  The program features five target areas, one Signature Program, and Community Service Days. The Five target areas are:

  1. Educational Enrichment
  2. Health Promotion
  3. Family Strengthening
  4. Environmental Ownership
  5. Global Impact

For more information on Launching New Dimensions of Service, please visit the Programs section of our website.

As the organization’s 2014-2018 International President, it is my distinct honor and privilege to serve in this role at this time in our history. It is my commitment to lead with the same steadfast enthusiasm and spirit that each of my predecessors embodied. Over the next 4 years, I look forward to working with the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority leadership, members, partners, and sponsors in Launching New Dimensions of Service at home and around the world.
