About Us

Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc. is a nonprofit, Asian-interest sorority that was founded on March 9, 1995 at SUNY Binghamton in Binghamton, New York. Our sorority was conceived through the notion of an organization that would provide a culturally sound and educationally inspiring grounding for Asian-American women. We are a cultural sorority with an emphasis on service and commitment to giving back to our members’ communities.

Mission Statement

“We, the sisters of the Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Incorporated, strive to strengthen Sisterhood amongst women by providing Service and promoting Cultural Diversity to our members and our community, thus securing the bond of kinship for posterity. Kappa Phi Lambda exists to further educate individuals about Pan-Asian culture, while keeping our own identities. We aim for academic excellence, keeping in mind the importance of education and learning as the key to strength, awareness, and fulfillment.”

Our Pillars

We distinguish ourselves on our three pillars:

Cultural Diversity

Although each chapter of Kappa Phi Lambda is unique in its approach to promoting these pillars, they are the foundation of our sorority and the virtues that bring us together in sisterhood. These values do not make us better than anyone; rather, they allow our sisters to become stronger women, provide service, and help advocate for cultural diversity within the greater community.
