2019 Alpha Kappa Delta Inductees - Curry College

Alpha Kappa Delta

Alpha Gamma, Curry College's chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta, was founded in 2018. Alpha Kappa Delta, the international honor society in Sociology, was founded in 1920 at the University of Southern California by Dr. Emory Bogardus.

Alpha Kappa Delta derives its name from the first letters of the three Greek words that together signify the Society's goal: To study humankind for the purpose of service. The purpose of Alpha Kappa Delta is to promote human welfare through the association of a fellowship group interested in developing scientific knowledge that may be applied to the solution of social problems.

In order to qualify for Alpha Kappa Delta at Curry College, a student must be a junior who has earned at least 60 credits with a minimum overall GPA of 3.3, with at least 12 earned credits in Sociology and a minimum of a 3.0 GPA in those courses.

On April 28, 2021 the Sociology & Criminal Justice department welcomed eight new students into the Sociology Honor Society, Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD)

2021 Alpha Kappa Delta Ceremony/Inductees

On April 28, 2021 the Sociology & Criminal Justice department welcomed eight new students into the Sociology Honor Society, Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD). AKD seeks to acknowledge and promote excellence in the scholarship in the study of social problems, sociology, and intellectual activities that lead to the improvement in the human condition. While qualification for induction is based on GPA, all of the inductees are well-rounded and incredibly successful students, with a host of internships, study abroads, leadership positions, grad school acceptances, and other honor society memberships on their resumes. The virtual induction ceremony was hosted by Professors Alan Grigsby, Sarah Augusto, and Amanda Kennedy, and attended by students, their families, and some beloved professors. Congrats all!
