The Signature Program is #CAP SM which is the abbreviation for College Admissions Process. It is designed to assist students in their efforts to enter college by providing a hands-on approach that includes all the steps from researching various colleges to actually completing the application process. In addition to the program targets, the Exemplifying Excellence Through Sustainable Service administration is pleased to continue Community Impact Days. Chapters will engage in simultaneous activities that will benefit the
community and continue our commitment to lifelong service.
A significant feature of this programmatic thrust is the launch of AKA University SM ! This exciting new platform will serve as the umbrella under which education, training, and leadership development will emerge so that members can enhance their personal development and provide more impactful service to the community.

Alpha Rho Omega is comprised of more than 500 college-educated women from diverse backgrounds. To achieve its goals and maintains its profile in the community, the chapter draws on its diverse constituency of women representing a variety of professions, including the business, legal, political, media, educational, governmental, technological, entertainment, and healthcare industries. Many of these women have
distinguished themselves with graduate and professional degrees as well as high achievements in their respective fields while still contributing to the sorority. Yet, the chapter seeks to expand its reach to more women who share its sincere interest in life-long service to the organization and our community.
To attend our service events to observe how Alpha Rho Omega is “taking care of business and hearts” in Detroit, Michigan, we encourage you to routinely visit our Chapter Calendar of Events.
As a reminder, membership in Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc., on the graduate level is by invitation only and may not be solicited.
