Delta Xi Undergraduate Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha

The Delta Xi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. was the first Black Greek Letter Organization established at the University of Texas at Austin. Our beloved chapter charter members were among the first African-American students admitted to the University.

Delta Xi was chartered on the University of Texas at Austin campus on May 16, 1959, at high noon in the Queen Ann Room. The charter members were serenaded by members of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. who were attending the University at that time. Over the years, Delta Xi has grown to be a leader in many ongoing service as well as social projects within the community. She is continously upholding the purpose of Alpha Kappa Alpha and striving for unity and academic excellence.

National History

National History HeaderDelta Xi History Header

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. is the oldest Greek-letter organization established in America by Black college women. The record of its origin, growth and development, activities, evolving goals and accomplishments is more than an interesting chronicle of a colorful bit of college-based Americana. It is, rather, a significant and inspiring reflection of the development of a minority group in a changing culture.

On January 15, 1908, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. became America’s first Greek-letter organization established by and for Black women. Her roots date back to Howard University, Washington, D.C., where the idea for formation was conceived by Ethel Hedgeman Lyle of St. Louis, Missouri. She viewed the Sorority as an instrument for enriching the social and intellectual aspects of college life by providing mental stimulation through interaction with friends and associates. Through the years, however, Alpha Kappa Alpha’s functioning has become more complex. After her incorporation as a perpetual body in 1913, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. gradually branched out and became the channel through which selected college-trained women improved the social and economic conditions in their city, state, nation and world.

Today, that tradition has continued–internationally, nationally and locally. Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. cultivates and encourages high scholastic and ethical standards; promotes unity and friendship among college women; alleviates problems concerning girls and women; maintains a progressive interest in college life; and serves all mankind through a nucleus of more than 170,000 women in over 900 chapters.
