CHAPTER HISTORY

Alpha Kappa Psi is recognized as the premier developer of principled business leaders. Our international fraternity was founded at New York University in 1904, and the University of Pittsburgh Delta Chapter was started in 1912. Since our founding we have been attracting the brightest students on campus in the interest of developing their professional skills and living our core values of Brotherhood, Knowledge, Integrity, Service, and Unity.


As one of the University of Pittsburgh's professional fraternities, Alpha Kappa Psi is a unique brotherhood to campus. Regardless of age or major, each of our brothers are dedicated to pursuing excellence in corporate and community leadership. We are proud to call many of the most accomplished leaders on campus our own: presidents of business clubs and honor societies, chairs of major campus-wide events, student teachers, varsity athletes, and organizers of important community service initiatives. 


When our members graduate, they join a rich Pitt Alpha Kappa Psi alumni network spanning across the country. Our graduates can be found working at some of the most prestigious business and technology companies in the world: from Google to Goldman Sachs, from Microsoft to McKinsey & Company, and more.

NATIONAL HISTORY

On October 5, 1904, Alpha Kappa Psi was founded on the principles of educating its members and the public to appreciate and demand higher ideals in business and to further the individual welfare of members during college and beyond. The nation's first professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi developed and expanded rapidly in its early years, becoming an international organization on April 18, 1931. Over its 107-year history, AKPsi has grown to be the largest business fraternity in the world, with 332 chapters and over 225,000 initiated members across three countries. Our alumni include presidents, chief executives, and federal judges.
