The original organization began as a study group, and the new Iota line at Morris Brown has upheld the academic streak. They bolster an average Grade Point Average of 3.7 while still conducting their required community service and advocacy work. 

The fraternity’s mission statement promises “to prepare them for the greatest usefulness in the causes of humanity, dignity and freedom of the individual; To encourage the highest and noblest form of manhood and; To aid down-trodden humanity in its efforts to achieve higher social, economic, and intellectual status.”

The current president of the Iota Chapter, Brother Trevor J. Chin, said that the basis of community outreach will be extended even through time. By offering academic scholarships, Chin explained that the Iota Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha is “committed to embodying the mission and vision of our revered fraternity.”
