The mission of the Eta Omicron Chapter is to extend Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority's signature service to West Virginia University and the community beyond with determination, faith, and an unparalleled sisterhood.
Since 1973, the women of Eta Omicron Chapter have asked what is needed in this community for such a time as this. Eta Omicron Chapter has developed innovative programs, partnered with like-minded organizations to address the needs of our community. We are proud of our legacy, and look forward to a bright future continuing this work.
The 2018-2022 International Program will focus on sustainable service providing opportunities for our 300,000 members and over 1,024 chapters, to continue to address community needs with programs in five target areas:
TARGET #1: HBCU 4 Life: A Call to Action
