Alpha Kappa Delta

In 2006, the Department became the Phi chapter (Region I) of Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD), the International Sociology Honor Society. University of Southern California sociologist Emory Bogardus founded AKD in 1920. Since then, more than 640 chapters have been chartered in seven countries. All of them, including our Department’s, share one purpose: “To investigate humanity for the purpose of service.” Click here for a list of our recent inductees. For more information about AKD, please contact Dr. DeCesare.
