District History

A Brief History of The SC District of Alpha Phi Alpha, Inc.

We are the thirty-two (32) chapters of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. representing the District of South Carolina. We proudly emphasize the aims of Alpha Phi Alpha: “Manly Deeds, Scholarship, and love for all Mankind”, by implementing the Fraternity’s National programs and maintaining brotherhood in Alpha through social, civic, and community based programs and events. Chapter programs include efforts with the March of Dimes, MLK Memorial Project, Boy Scouts of America, Big Brothers & Big Sisters, and many others.

Our mission is to develop leaders, promotes brotherhood and academic excellence, while providing service and advocacy for our communities throughout South Carolina.

Currently, we have fifteen (15) undergraduate chapters located at public and private colleges and universities, and seventeen (17) graduate chapters in most major cities in South Carolina. Annually, the District sponsors a District Conference in the Fall, a District College Brothers Summit in the Spring, and a District Leadership Retreat in the late Summer.
