Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) Beta of Alaska Chapter

Alpha Kappa Delta is an international sociological honor society. The Beta of Alaska Chapter was formed in 1998, and was revitalized in 2003 by the infusion of a new cohort of enthusiastic students and faculty. Membership is open to high-achieving sociology students who are at least in their junior year. Here at UAF, new members are inducted at an annual Spring ceremony sponsored by the Department of Sociology. To celebrate AKD members' achievement, the Department of Sociology also gives AKD members beautiful teal honor cords to be worn during the graduation ceremony.

If you are interested in joining AKD, please visit the Alpha Kappa Delta official website. If you qualify, contact your sociology faculty advisor to make sure you receive a formal invitation to the annual induction ceremony. Becoming a member in AKD is one of the highest honors bestowed upon undergraduate students, and we welcome your participation.

In spring semester 2013, we inducted 11 eligible juniors and seniors into our chapter! Invitations will go out to eligible students in late January 2014 with the induction ceremony to take place on March 27th at 1:00pm in the Wood Center.

For more information, contact Dr. Kara Dillard, the AKD faculty representative.
