Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion web page provides updates on Kappa Alpha Theta's actions regarding our efforts on inclusion and diversity within our organization.
Membership in Theta—whether we’re alumnae or collegians—challenges us, supports us, and makes us better people. At every age and every stage, Thetas seek opportunities to learn, grow, and give back to those around them.
Although most members join Kappa Alpha Theta as collegians, Theta sisterhood is not merely a college experience. Our ritual, our ideals of individual achievement and work for the common good, our shared experiences of service, scholarship, and sisterhood: all these build a lifelong link of sisterhood between each of us. Joining a Theta alumnae group is one way to continue your active participation after graduation.
Alumnae chapters offer a variety of programs and events, including community involvement, networking opportunities, philanthropic projects, social events, and meetings with themes or guest speakers. Many alumnae chapters also offer "special interest" groups, such as a downtown lunch group, a gardening group, or a recent graduates group.
An alumnae circle is less structured than a chapter. Members may meet for periodic lunches or to enjoy a common interest, such as filling backpacks for CASA kids, attending plays, forming a book club, and playing cards.
Theta is pleased to introduce a new program created to help alumnae and collegians support and keep in touch with one another in both our personal and professional lives. Sign up on the ThetaConnect app to search our network of members, find a mentor, and connect with others in interest groups. The possibilities are exciting!
Each quarter, Theta alumnae with a good email address receive a newsletter, keeping them informed of the latest news and happenings from the Fraternity, Foundation, and Fraternity Housing Corporation, and how to stay involved as an alumna. Log in to Theta Portal to ensure we have your most updated information.
Staying connected to my local alumnae chapter provides me with ongoing opportunities for the development of meaningful relationships and access to resources not otherwise available to me.
Staying involved in Theta as an alumna opens doors and relationships different from the undergraduate experience.
Theta has significantly influenced my life, and I want to pay it forward by helping others experience the same rewards.

The Fraternity's alumna initiate program offers membership to exceptional women who, for reasons unknown, were not a part of Greek life as college women. Our laws state that an alumna initiate candidate must identify as a woman, who attended college and for whom a reference form has been received (from a member in good standing), in accordance with the laws of the Fraternity.
Alumnae chapters offer a variety of programs and events to meet the needs and interests of their membership. These could include community volunteer involvement, networking opportunities, philanthropic projects, social events, and meetings with themes or guest speakers. Many alumnae chapters also offer "special interest" groups, such as a downtown lunch group, a gardening group, or a recent graduates group.
You don't have to wait for an invitation! An alumna is always welcome at an alumnae chapter gathering. And alumnae chapter membership is a small time commitment: You can participate in as many events/projects as you choose.
Members of alumnae chapters pay annual per capita dues of $31 to the Fraternity through their alumnae chapters. Chapters determine an additional amount for local dues to cover chapter operating expenses.

An alumnae circle is less structured than a chapter. Two members serve as contact persons for the group so they can remain connected to the Fraternity. Circle groups are encouraged to meet at least one time during the year (Founders Day, for example) and to support the Fraternity by paying dues in the spring.
An alumnae circle may choose to offer as many or as few events as pleases its membership. Its members may meet for periodic lunches or to enjoy a common interest, such as filling backpacks for CASA kids, attending plays, forming a book club, or playing cards.
Circle members are encouraged to pay per capita dues to the Fraternity in the spring, but it is not a requirement. Each year, circle contacts are asked to send an updated list of members to Theta headquarters and have members remit dues at that time. If an event scheduled by a circle requires funding, each member pays her own way because there is neither a treasurer nor a circle checking account.
