"To investigate humanity for the purpose of service”
In 1920, University of Southern California sociologist, Dr. Emory S. Bogardus, founded Alpha Kappa Delta for the purposes of stimulating scholarship and promoting the scientific study of society. Bogardus’ goal was to establish an organization that would provide a forum for student and faculty interchange. His vision paved the way for what has become an international organization dedicated to promoting, facilitating, and recognizing academic scholarship. Alpha Kappa Delta is an integral part of many Sociology programs and has initiated over 80,000 scholars in the past eight decades. More than 490 chapters have been chartered in the United States, Canada, China, Finland, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Singapore.
For the past decade, the PI Chapter at CSUSB has initiated about twelve students a year who major in Sociology. The chapter has organized scholarly forums and participated in community service projects.
