Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Incorporated was founded on Tuesday, December 4, 1906 on the campus of Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. The Kappa Tau chapter was founded at Kansas State University and Thursday, April 15, 1976 by members we recognize as ‘5 Great Men’: Brother Greg Baker, Brother Lonnie Barnes, Brother Jimmie King and, Brother Keith Peterson. While the Kappa Tau chapter was one of the last Black Greek Letter Organizations founded at Kansas State and we are blessed to have celebrated our 40th continuous year at our university.
Kappa Tau prides itself in working feverously to ensure the each of the four national programs of Alpha Phi Alpha are experienced by all students at Kansas State University and the Manhattan, KS community. These programs are:Go-To High School, Go To College
Each new class of brothers brings excitement and innovation. Many of Kappa Tau’s staple programs exuded the energy that the brothers use through their individual passions and talents. These programs include:Martin Luther King Observance Week
We especially grateful to the faculty and students at Kansas State University who have supported our past programs! Kappa will continue to bring fresh programs that add value to Kansas State University & Manhattan, while upholding our fraternity aims of ‘Manly Deeds, Scholarship, and Love for All Mankind.
