Kappa Phi (ΚΦ) is a national Christian sisterhood,[1][2] which "focuses on four areas: Service, Worship, Fellowship, and Study."[3] The student organization is interdenominational Christian,[3] although it was formed under the auspices of The United Methodist Church.[4] The first chapter was founded at the University of Kansas in 1916.[5] By 1967, Kappa Phi had a presence in over 33 colleges and universities,[4] although today, it has over 50 active and alumnae chapters.[6][7]
