Alpha Kappa Delta

AKD at Kent State has three primary purposes

  1. Supporting student scholarship
  2. Facilitating professional socialization
  3. Being good members of our community

We do this by…

  • Organizing workshops on professional skills that students are interested in learning about.
  • Celebrating student achievement with an end-of-the-year awards banquet.
  • Offering funding for conference travel and holding paper award contests via the national AKD organization.
  • Organizing department-wide social events to help socialize students in the field of sociology.
  • Volunteering with local community groups that work to alleviate pressing social problems.

Alpha Kappa Delta seeks to acknowledge and promote excellence in scholarship in the study of sociology.
