Lambda Phi Epsilon is an internationally-recognized fraternity in the United States and Canada. With a total of 54 chapters, it is the largest Asian-interest fraternity in North America. Lambda Phi Epsilon's goals include servicing the community through various philanthropies, increasing Asian awareness, promoting academic scholarship, and strengthening the Asian American voice on campus. Lambda Phi Epsilon Fraternity, Inc. being the current largest Asian-interest fraternity, continues to expand to other campuses every year. A group of nineteen dedicated men decided to form Lambda Phi Epsilon on February 25, 1981. Noting that Asian fraternities and sororities at the UC campuses were recognized only as service organizations due to their memberships focus on specific Asian groups and to the exclusion of other ethnic groups, the goal of the founders was to transcend this limitation.
