ABOUT KAPPA PHI LAMBDA

SISTERHOOD

There is only one thing stronger than magic and that is sisterhood. We love that fact that each one of our sisters is different and through sisterhood, we get to share our different values, cultures, beliefs and learn from each other. Through this eternal bond, we create friendships even beyond campus and even college years. We may all be different but through through sisterhood, we unite as one, Kappa Phi Lambda.

SERVICE

Contributing to the community and supporting important causes are core values of Kappa Phi Lambda. Whether it’s by volunteering in our community right here in Ithaca/Cornell Campus or by supporting our national and local philanthropies, the pillar of service empowers and inspires our sisters to tackle socioeconomic issues such as economic injustice, gender inequality, domestic violence, and hate crimes. We take pride in our dedication to giving back and supporting organizations that endlessly work to make the world a better place.

CULTURAL DIVERSITY

In an increasingly diversifying world, it is more important now than ever before to enrich ourselves with the knowledge of other ethnicities and become aware of the societal problems they encounter. No two groups of people are the same, and we benefit ourselves and our neighbors to collaborate with others outside our own racial community. The sisters of Kappa Phi Lambda are constantly pushing ourselves to think not only of ourselves, but those around us who have grown up in different cultures. We seek to respect other’s ethnical identities and discuss ways to be more aware of–and more active in rallying agains–the issues minorities (not just Asians and Asian-Americans) face in modern times.
