Kappa Alpha Psi, a largely Black college fraternity, was chartered in the state of Indiana on May 15, 1911. The charter with the state came four months after the fraternity was founded on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington.

The fraternity now has more than 150,000 members with 700 undergraduate and alumni chapters in nearly every state of the United States, and international chapters in the United Kingdom, Germany, Korea, Japan, United States Virgin Islands, Nigeria and South Africa.

Kappa Alpha Psi is not only a fraternity but also a philanthropic powerhouse. The fraternity sponsors a number of programs that provide community service, social welfare and academic scholarships through the Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation, supports the United Negro College Fund and Habitat for Humanity, and is a member of the North-American Interfraternity Conference.
