Purpose of Kappa Gamma Delta To educate college students and to assist them in their own personal ambitions in the field of health care; to encourage development of leadership, communication skills, and maturity; to provide support academically, socially, and emotionally; to promote individuality, unity, and diversity.
Kappa Gamma Delta began during the winter quarter of 1994 at the University of California, Davis when students Charlene Tran and Marge Lee envisioned a professional sorority that would provide support for individuals during the pre-medical process. Our founding mothers are Maricris Belisario, Chong Choe, Mindy Compton, Pamela Hy, Marge Lee, Kathy Pham, Jennifer Skinkle (now Jennifer Schwartz), Charlene Tran, Gwen Tran, Aileen Tiew, Carolyn Trieu, and Julie Tse.
Since its inception, Kappa Gamma Delta has provided college students with a source of academic, social, and emotional support. Between our alumnae network, close ties with the community, and a diverse sisterhood, we are able to provide our members with everything they need to be successful in life. Kappa Gamma Delta offers its sisters an environment that stresses the balance between hard work and fun, and gives it's members plenty of chances to do both.
We now have sister chapters at UC Santa Cruz and UC Berkeley. If you are interested in forming a chapter of KGD at your University, please contact our Public Relations officer.
