Alpha Kappa Delta is the international sociology honor society. In 1920, University of Southern California sociologist Dr. Emory S. Bogardus, founded AKD for the purpose of stimulating scholarship and promoting the scientific study of society. The impetus in establishing this organization was to provide a forum for student and faculty interchange. As we enter the 21st century, AKD is proud to acknowledge that over 80,000 scholars have been initiated into the Society. More than 490 chapters have been chartered in the United States, Canada, China, Finland, the Philippines, Taiwan and Singapore.
The St. Mary’s Chapter of Alpha Kappa Delta, the Mu Chapter of Maryland was chartered in 2001. Students inducted into AKD have achieved academic excellence in sociology.
