The members of KOA seek to bring together students interested in law, public policy and criminal justice to build a community that offers professional, social and philanthropic opportunities with the goal of developing members into professionals and leaders.
Kappa Omega Alpha was founded at the University of Michigan in 2009 to bring together students who shared an interest in law, public policy and criminal justice. The organization saw tremendous success and soon spread here to Michigan State as well as to Cornell and the University of Maryland. The Beta Chapter of Kappa Omega Alpha was established at Michigan State University in the spring of 2016 by a handful of freshman in James Madison College who sought to create an organization that was inclusive to students across a diverse array of backgrounds and majors.
Through hard work and dedication, KOA has grown to 75 members across 24 majors and 8 colleges. We welcome all majors and recognize the value that all individuals bring to the organization.
