Sociology Activities, Student Organizations, & Clubs

Alpha Kappa Delta

Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) is the international honor society of sociology. A, K, and D are the first letters of Athropon Katamannthanein Diakonesin, which means "to investigate humanity for the purpose of service". Members of AKD promote excellence in the study of sociology, research of social problems, and intellectual activities that lead to improvement in human conditions.
