Nu Gamma Alpha, Gents LTD., Inc was founded on Howard University's campus in 1962. From the seed planted at Howard, seventeen chapters were formulated. Chapters located along the Eastern Seaboard and as far west as Arkansas were established.

The goal of Nu Gamma Alpha is to promote and encourage scholarship. We will assist in formulating worthy and obtainable goals that exemplify the true nature of brotherhood among our members and the community at large. Through this effort, our objective will be to support individuals and organizations that aspire to meet similar causes and provide support, where applicable, to address educational, social and spiritual needs
