Membership

As some of the earliest women to attend college, Kappa Alpha Theta’s founders fought to be recognized and accepted in a frequently hostile educational and social environment. Today, we strive to provide an inclusive environment throughout the membership experience. Our mission is to offer women lifelong opportunities for intellectual and personal growth.

Kappa Alpha Theta Headquarters

The first salaried position established by Kappa Alpha Theta was that of the editor in 1891. In 1909, the editor and grand secretary positions combined. L. Pearle Green, Grand Secretary from 1909 to 1939 and editor from 1911 to 1949, worked out of her sister's home in Ithaca, New York, and for many years this early home office served as the defacto central office of Kappa Alpha Theta. In 1922, Grand Council allocated funds for a central executive office with a secretary, clerical assistant, office rent, and equipment.

National Panhellenic Conference

The National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) was founded in 1902 as an umbrella organization for 26 national and international women's fraternities and sororities. Kappa Alpha Theta, along with Alpha Phi, Alpha Chi Omega, Gamma Phi Beta, Delta Gamma, Delta Delta Delta, Kappa Kappa Gamma, Pi Beta Phi, and Chi Omega, was a founding member group and is the only organization to have held the chairmanship of NPC three times.
