Alpha Kappa Psi came to Howard University in the spring of 2009, when a group of students met on the 2nd floor of the ELI Institute (Institute for Entrepreneurship Leadership & Innovation). They were all interested in bringing a new concept of a business fraternity to Howard University's Campus. After much deliberation and research, Alpha Kappa Psi was the fraternity determined to be established. This was the catalyst that the Fraternity needed to establish itself at Howard University, after years of unsuccessful attempts at establishing itself on the illustrious campus.
In the spring of 2009, a Chapter Advisor was named and the Interest Group had it’s first events, eventually getting to a stable size of around 50 members. Michael Dickerson, the Alpha Kappa Psi Mideast Regional Director, came to Howard and installed the group as the Howard Colony of Alpha Kappa Psi Fraternity on March 23, 2009.
Over the course of the next semester, the Colony prepared its bylaws, hosted several professional events, held social events, passed the fraternal exam, and had it's Petition for Charter approved by the Fraternity Board of Directors. The Colony was installed as the Psi Tau Chapter on November 7, 2009, by Fraternity President Andrea Nemeth in a lavish ceremony, attended by national staff, regional officers, other chapters, and volunteers.
Since the Psi Tau Chapters inception we have grown leaps and bounds. Creating new and innovative trends, and maintaining a solid brotherhood, Psi Tau is here to stay and bring a new prospective on professionalism to the Howard University community.
