We are the Chi Chapter of the Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. located at the University of Maryland, College Park. Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. is a nonprofit, Asian-interest sorority that was founded on March 9, 1995 at SUNY Binghamton in Binghamton, New York. Our sorority was conceived through the notion of an organization that would provide a culturally sound and educationally inspiring grounding for Asian-American women. We are a cultural sorority with an emphasis on service and commitment to giving back to our members’ communities. We are represented at 29 schools, with over 3000+ sisters worldwide.
We, the sisters of the Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Incorporated,
strive to strengthen Sisterhood amongst women by providing Service and promoting Cultural Diversity to our members and our community, thus securing the bond of kinship for posterity. Kappa Phi Lambda exists to further educate individuals about Pan-Asian culture, while keeping our own identities. We aim for academic excellence, keeping in mind the importance of education and learning as the key to strength, awareness, and fulfillment.
Although it is difficult to describe, the bond of sisterhood is a common light that burns passionately in each sister. We embrace a unique relationship based on friendship, respect, and a shared vision. Wherever we go, and no matter how long ago we were initiated, each sister is connected and important to the sorority.
Contributing to the community and supporting important causes are core values of Kappa Phi Lambda. We place a heavy emphasis on service and are committed to giving back to our communities. We also upheld strong ideals of philanthropy adopting CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty as our national philanthropy.
Although we are an Asian/Asian American interest sorority, by no means are we Asian-exclusive. We believe that by educating our community and our members about the beauty and complexity of Pan-Asian cultural heritage, we uphold the importance of understanding all cultures and enriching multiculturalism.
