Thank you for visiting this site and for taking an interest in Greek life! Joining a Greek-letter organization is a wonderful way for your daughter to meet other women in pursuit of a college degree, gain leadership skills, serve the community, and establish lifelong friendships.
Kappa Alpha Theta was the first Greek-letter fraternity for women and was founded on the principles of attaining the highest scholarship and influencing the campus, community, and world for good. Kappa Alpha Theta seeks to complement your daughter’s academic experience by providing opportunities through which she can experience these true promises of membership. As a Theta, she will also experience the friendship, fun, and sisterhood that have kept our organization strong since 1870.
Kappa Alpha Theta seeks to promote a high standard of excellence in all aspects of Fraternity life and prides itself on acting as a leader within the Greek community. Risk management policies are in place to protect our Fraternity’s rich history, but more importantly, the well being of our members. The goals of Kappa Alpha Theta membership include, but are not limited to, the preparation of a woman to accept the responsibilities of Fraternity membership and the encouragement of a woman’s personal development to meet the demands of a mature life. In accordance with these goals, Kappa Alpha Theta does not tolerate any acts that may be construed as hazing.
Hazing can be defined as subjecting a person to an activity which endangers or is likely to endanger the health or safety of a member or which tends to humiliate, embarrass, or cause personal discomfort regardless of one’s willingness to participate in such activity.
Hazing violates Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity laws, FIPG, and Fraternity insurance carrier policies and may violate local, state, province, university or college rules and regulations. Hazing is a severe risk management concern and is subject to legal consequences, including criminal liability in many jurisdictions. Risk management means more than keeping members safe at social events; it means maintaining safety throughout all aspects of chapter membership. Kappa Alpha Theta seeks to promote an environment that is physically and emotionally safe at all times.
Hazing, in any form, will not be tolerated. Hazing may result in chapter and member discipline, including termination of membership.
