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.
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 be 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.
The hope of the Fraternity is for the alumna initiate to become an active member of an alumnae group, advise a college chapter, volunteer time and leadership skills as part of the Fraternity's workforce, give to Theta Foundation, or to participate in some way once initiated.
The candidate will participate in a brief conversation with the director of alumnae engagement. This allows an opportunity for the candidate to express her intentions, hopes and planned involvement in membership with Kappa Alpha Theta. It also allows the candidate an opportunity to ask any questions she might have about her membership at that time.
Once approved, the candidate will then participate in an education process led by the sponsor, which includes Fraternity history and core values. The sponsor will work with headquarters staff to set up her initiation date and chapter.
The candidate's financial obligations (payable by the sponsor or candidate) include an initiation fee of $180, which includes a standard badge, and a Life Loyal membership that has a one-time fee of $299. Life Loyal membership includes Fraternity per capita dues for life and a quarterly subscription to The Kappa Alpha Theta Magazine, among other benefits.
