Kappa Phi Lambda (KPL) is an Asian-interest multicultural sorority founded at SUNY Binghamton in 1995 and established at Columbia University on December 6th, 2003. The only Asian-interest sorority currently on Columbia's campus, Kappa Phi Lambda is recognized by the Multicultural Greek Council, and its sisters are referred to as "Kappas".

The sisters of the Kappa Phi Lambda Sorority, Inc., strive to strengthen sisterhood amongst women by providing service and promoting cultural diversity to its members and its community, thus securing the bond of kinship for posterity. Kappa Phi Lambda exists to further educate individuals about Pan-Asian culture, while keeping its own identity. They aim for academic excellence, keeping in mind the importance of education and learning as the key to strength, awareness, and fulfillment.

A sisterhood comprised of unique and dedicated women, Kappa Phi Lambda continues to display a strong presence on campus, with representation in many Columbia organizations such as Chinese Students Club, Taiwanese American Students Association, Asian American Alliance, Liga Filipina, Columbia Daily Spectator, The Julliard School, and more.


Service & Philanthropy

Kappa Phi Lambda has two main pillars: Service & Philanthropy, and Cultural Diversity:

  • Service and Philanthropy:

Kappa Phi Lambda’s national philanthropic cause is the National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF), the only multi-issue APA women’s organization in the country with the mission to build a movement to advance social justice and human rights for APA women and girls. The sorority also focuses on contributing to domestic violence organizations, all the while maintaining its sense of diversity by fundraising for other types of causes of concern.

  • Cultural Diversity:

Kappa Phi Lambda chapters and colonies organize programming that enriches cultural awareness. Events include speaker series, workshops, film screenings, and collaborations with other cultural groups. The sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda strongly believe in the importance of cultural diversity—not only amongst its members but also within the greater context of its general community. Although it is an Asian American interest sorority, the organization stresses multicultural awareness through a variety of Pan-Asian cultural events.
