  2. Greetings!!!!! Kappa Phi Iota Sorority, Inc. would like to welcome you.

  3. What is a sorority? A sorority is a group of young women who are bound together out of the sense of duty and sisterhood. The word sorority is from the Latin word “soror” which means sister.

  4. What is Kappa Phi Iota?

  5. Kappa Phi Iota Sorority, Incorporated is the first historically black sorority with a strong literary focus. While it was founded by women of color, Kappa Phi Iota’s membership is open to women of all races, colors and creeds. Kappa Ladies cannot be made. They are born. The spirit of Kappa Phi Iota cannot be beaten into prospective members. This is why we choose to hand pick our members from hundreds of applicants instead of hazing people into shape in the hopes that they will become our ideal member.

  6. Mission The mission of Kappa Phi Iota Sorority, Incorporated is to bring together intellectual,civic-minded women and motivate them in order to achieve a higher purpose for life with confidence and a feeling of self worth; to shine brightly in a dark, uncaring world - setting social, civic and moral standards while maintaining loyalty and sisterhood above all.
