How it began

Cincinnati (OH) Alumni Chapter

Chartered December 18, 1923

On a cold, dreary day in the City of Cincinatti Ohio, five medical doctors gathered and shared a dream. That dream was birthed on December 18th, 1923.

That dream was the Cincinnati Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity.   A place where history collided with destiny that forever transformed the reality of hundreds of men that have walked the golden path.

Engaged in our community

Since our inception, members of Kappa Alpha Psi have answered the call to serve.  The Cincinnati Alumni Chapter, with our diverse and talented member base is uniquely positioned to be of impactful service to the Greater Cincinnati community at large.  We are present in our community.  We are visible in our community.  We are vocal in our community.  From working with children on academics, to feeding the needy, to speaking out on important social issues, you will always see members of our chapter answering the call when needed.








Supporting our undergraduate members

The Cincinnati Alumni Chapter is committed to providing oversight and direction to the undergraduate chapters under our purview.  However, our engagement with undergraduate members goes far beyond oversight.  Alumni members play an integral role in ensuring the undergraduate members have the tools necessary to maintain successful chapters on their respective campuses.  Additionally, alumni members provide financial, career, leadership and social support to aid the undergraduate members to be well rounded and successful upon departing their universities.
