Alpha Phi was founded at Syracuse University in Syracuse, New York on September 18, 1872. Alpha Phi has 175 thriving collegiate chapters and more than 131 alumnae communities across the U.S. and Canada with more than 250,000 members who pride themselves in being a sisterhood of women supporting one another in lifelong achievement. 

The Kappa Iota chapter at the University of Wyoming was founded in Fall 2019 and chartered in August 2020. In 2021, Kappa Iota received both awards of Sorority of the Year and Chapter of the Year. At their first inaugural Red Dress Gala philanthropic event, they raised more than $12,000 which was donated to the Alpha Phi Foundation to continue advancing the lives of women around the world. 

Alpha Phi is devoted to involvement on UWs campus with members participating in a diverse amount of organizations including Cowboy Coaching, the Honors College, executive positions on the Panhellenic Council, senator and Vice President positions on ASUW, both UW athletic teams and club sports, tutoring, and various other student organizations. 


Mission and Values of Alpha Phi

Alpha Phi offers a unique bond of sisterhood, a spirit of generosity, high expectations for character and a drive for innovation. These are our High Ideals of Membership, which define what it truly means to be an Alpha Phi.

Our mission statement is: Alpha Phi is a loyal sisterhood of women courageously pursuing limitless excellence.

We seek the highest ideal of womanhood, and we try to gain this ideal by cultivating not only the power and passion for seeking intellectual development but, also, the spirit of love and charity. And we who are thus united are under a solemn pledge to lend a helping hand to one another.
