Greek Life for Minorities
Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. is an Asian-interest, but not Asian-exclusive, organization founded by 7 students at Binghamton University in 1995. These 7 students aimed to empower minority women by creating a supportive and professional community around sisterhood.
I have chosen to focus on this sorority for my MEJO 121 project as a current sister of the KPL colony at UNC-Chapel Hill. While my colony was not the first in the state, we are currently the fastest-growing colony of KPL in North Carolina. You can learn more about the UNC-Chapel Hill colony of Kappa Phi Lambda here.
Kappas Expand into North Carolina
Kappa Phi Lambda first expanded into North Carolina in 2010 at Duke University. The sorority has continued to expand throughout the state. You can find details about KPL’s expansion in the infographic below.
While the only schools in North Carolina with Kappas are currently Duke University, NC State University, UNC-Chapel Hill, and UNC-Charlotte, UNC-Greensboro has also shown interest in hosting a new colony of Kappa Phi Lambda.
