Our Story

About Kappa Phi Lambda

Founded on March 9, 1995 at Binghamton University, Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. is a sisterhood that builds women to discover and grow their potential as leaders. Through our nationwide love and effort in serving our community, promoting cultural diversity, raising awareness through philanthropies that make a difference, and building lifelong friendships, we strive to start something within each individual that will change the world.

chapter history

The Alpha Gamma Chapter of Kappa Phi Lambda was founded by 7 courageous young women: Shirley Luong, Jaclyn Nguyen, Jocelyn Lo, Erica Hui, Victoria Thai, Sunny Ruy, and Christine Su, being the first school to expand the sisterhood towards the west. Kappa Phi Lambda was officially established at The University of Texas at Austin on November 21, 2009.


Our local philanthropic contribution is to the Coalition Against Trafficking in Women (CATW), and we annually hold Worlds Unite, an international festival to integrate and showcase the many different cultures on the UT campus. 

Our Pillars


What defines our sorority first and foremost is our bond of sisterhood, within UT Austin and across the nation! We embrace a unique relationship based on friendship, respect, and a shared vision. There’s no sisterhood like the Kappa Sisterhood.


Contributing to the community and supporting important causes are core values of Kappa Phi Lambda. The Pillar of Service empowers sisters to tackle tough socioeconomic issues such as domestic violence, hate crimes, economic injustice, human trafficking and immigration rights. Our national philanthropy is CARE, an humanitarian organization that fights global poverty. 

cultural diversity

Although we are an Asian interest sorority, by no means are we Asian exclusive. Across the nation, sisters represent a variety of ethnicities. Thus, we aim to enrich cultural awareness on campus through events that we host throughout the semester.
