Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD) is the International Sociology Honor Society. AKD was founded in 1920 at the University of Southern California by Dr. Emory S. Rogardus and became affiliated with the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) in 1967. AKD is also affiliated with the American Sociological Society (ASA).


The purpose of Alpha Kappa Delta is to seek to acknowledge and promote excellence in the scholarship in the study of sociology, the research of social problems, and such other social and intellectual activities as will lead to improvement in the human condition.


The ETA Chapter of EIU was established in 1971 and continues to remain very active. Undergraduate students who are interested in becoming members of AKD must meet the following minimum criteria:

  • be an officially declared sociology major or demonstrate a serious interest in sociology.
  • be at least a junior.
  • have maintained a 3.0 GPA in sociology courses at EIU.
  • complete 10 hours of community service once initiated into AKD.

If you are interested in becoming a member of AKD, please contact our faculty committee members for additional information.
