The Sorority’s purpose is:
to cultivate and encourage high scholastic and ethical standards,
to promote unity and friendship among college women,
to study and help alleviate problems concerning girls and women in order to improve
their social stature,
to maintain a progressive interest in college life,
and to be of “Service to All Mankind.”
For 70 years, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated® Mu Omega Chapter has presented biennially some of Kansas City’s finest young ladies as a Debutante to Kansas Society. Following the incorporation of the Metropolitan Leadership Institute, Incorporated (“MLI”), in 2011, Mu Omega Chapter and MLI have collaborated to present the Debutante Ball biennially.
The Debutante Ball season brings together young ladies who attend self-enriching workshops, participate in community service activities, trained to dance formally for the Debutante Ball and make memorable sisterly fellowship moments.
All Debutante participants must be sponsored by a financially active member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated®.
Mu Omega proudly hosts the 70th Debutante Ball, which will take place on November 24, 2023. Please access the Debutante Ball Application below. Applications must be submitted on or before April 8, 2023.
