Alpha Kappa Delta
University of Southern California sociologist Emory Bogardus founded Alpha Kappa Delta (AKD), the International Sociology Honor Society, in 1920. Since then, more than 640 chapters have been chartered in seven countries. All of them, including our Department’s, share one purpose: “To investigate humanity for the purpose of service.”
Merrimack’s Sociology Department was chartered as the Phi chapter (Region I) of AKD in 2006. We have inducted nearly 150 students since then.
