Alpha Kappa Psi has a strong history of comprehensive business education and leadership development. The Fraternity is committed to supporting and coaching chapter officers and members while keeping student fees low. With larger, modern facilities with the proper accommodations, AKPsi will be equipped and ready for training, programs, and gatherings. This will result in greater service to our members – both students and alumni.
Through the generosity of alumni and friends, AKPsi will establish a 200-person learning center and will expand current and future program opportunities for members. Thus, AKPsi will further establish its reputation as a trusted source for students, and current and future business leaders.
OUR BROTHERHOOD - OUR BOND
The story of Alpha Kappa Psi Fraternity begins at New York University in 1904 with a group of eager, serious-minded students who drafted the Fraternity’s founding documents and hosted the first business meeting. Less than 20 years later, in 1923, AKPsi would become the first professional fraternity to have a headquarters facility.
The esoteric quality we call “Brotherhood” is of vital importance though difficult to define. Our members, from the day they become brothers until the end of their lives, foster a great love of the Fraternity and a fondness for brother members.
While brotherhood manifests itself in a multitude of ways, at its center is a sense of duty and respect for both the Fraternity and individual members. Since 1904, AKPsi has focused on building a community of business leaders. It is because of those initial connections made among the Brooklyn Four that AKPsi now boasts a community that is larger and better than ever before.

“Brotherhood,” in every sense of the word, is of vital importance though difficult to define. From the day they become brothers until the end of their lives, foster a great love of the fraternity and a fondness for brother members. Our brotherhood, at its core, holds a sense of duty and respect for both the fraternity and individual members. Members anchored by the need to do what is in the best interest of the fraternity as a whole and are not swayed by individual self-interest.
High Ethical Standard
While the business world provides opportunities for success and advancement, our members will make decisions about how we succeed. The importance of making decisions and conducting business with both legal and ethical considerations, place our membersas role models through their consistently fair and ethical conduct.
College is merely the beginning of business education. Our members share their knowledge and experiences openly with the peoplethey work with,regardless of rank or position. In addition, they seek out opportunities to share their real-world experience with brother members, and in doing so they enhance the lifelong learning of those members.
Much is expected of those to whom much is given.Business professionals who seek to improve the communities in which they do business improve lives and develop goodwill. Our members actively give back to their communities through volunteer activities and monetary support

Because they recognize the value and importance of our Fraternity, our members are united in their passionto build a legacy for the future.They support the fraternity through volunteer leadership and monetary gifts.
