What is Delta Kappa Alpha?
Delta Kappa Alpha is a National, Professional, Gender-Inclusive Cinema Fraternity. Established at University of Southern California in 1936, the organization expanded to NYU in 1950. Now, as a national organization with over 75 years of history, DKA alumni include Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Lucille Ball, Alfred Hitchcock, and Julie Andrews. Currently, there are around 20 chapters across the US, including USC, UCLA, Berkeley, Chapman, LMU, Columbia University, and UT Austin. Delta Kappa Alpha prides itself in emphasizing timeless personal and professional values in its members.
What is the Gamma Chapter?
Gamma is the current chapter at New York University. Formed as the third national chapter, Gamma has an extensive historical background and alumni network. DKA is not limited to film students and our chapter takes great pride in having members from nearly every school at NYU. Through set opportunities, screenings, industry speakers, workshops, and more, we strive to prepare a collaborative community of artists for their entry into the world of entertainment.
The mission of Delta Kappa Alpha is to foster lifelong character, collaborative and creative storytelling, ethical and productive business practices, philanthropic action, and fraternal bonds by and between students of the cinematic arts.
The vision of Delta Kappa Alpha is to be recognized as the premiere institute of upstanding entertainment industry leaders.
