Mission and Ideals

SIS 19.jpg
Alpha Phi is a sisterhood of outstanding women supporting one another in lifelong achievement.

We accomplish this mission through the cultivation of three ideals that Alpha Phis hold above all else: Sisterhood, Scholarship and Service. 

Alpha Phis develop life-long friendships based on mutual support and unconditional love. We invite you to enjoy the benefits of a sincere sisterhood throughout college and in every stage of your life. 

Intellectual curiosity and academic excellence is highly valued in Alpha Phi. As a collegiate member, you will find that Alpha Phi will give you the support and tools you need to not only succeed, but excel in your academic endeavors. "We seek the highest ideal of womanhood, and we try to gain this ideal by cultivating...the power and passion for seeking intellectual development."
—Constitution of Alpha Phi International Fraternity 

The commitment of our founders to foster a "spirit of love and charity" has stood the test of time and remains as important to Alpha Phi today as it was in 1872. Practicing generosity and seeking to improve the lives of women are basic tenants of our Fraternity.

These three ideals form the core of the organization's six values of Sisterhood, Scholarship, Service, Leadership, Loyalty and Character Development.

"I pledge allegiance to Alpha Phi, who has chosen me to uphold her high ideals of womanhood, of scholarship, and of service and to perpetuate her spirit of sisterly love and kindness."
- Genevra Gwynn Wiley (Alpha-Syracuse), 1892
