A Global Network
The commitment of the brothers to the fraternity does not end with undergraduate study, but instead carries on for the rest of their lives. Since its inception, Lambda Phi Epsilon has amassed an ever growing alumni base of over 6,000 members. Its network reaches far and wide, with alumni populating cities all across the country, and even internationally, with clubs formed in regions of China, Korea, and Europe.
Every major region or city features an alumni chapter whose membership is open to any brothers residing in the area, regardless of the chapter they originated from. The goals and initiatives instilled at the collegiate level persevere at this level as well, with alumni chapters’ continuing efforts to embark on philanthropic ventures, advocate important causes, develop their individuals, and ultimately impact their communities. The exceptional brotherhood shared is what truly keeps the fraternity alive and its alumni members invested in sustaining its future. Through social mixers, community services, family events, chapter association, and more, the alumni of Lambda Phi Epsilon still continue to enjoy this incredible benefit.
While providing a venue for alumni themselves to stay involved, the alumni chapters are also focused on enhancing the experience for their undergraduate counterparts. The growth, success, and stability of the fraternity’s college chapters has largely been due to the outstanding support of its alumni members. A tremendous wealth of knowledge and experience is offered to younger members in the form of mentorship opportunities, chapter advising, and interaction at fraternity events. Especially in terms of career building, the fraternity’s resources are powerful and vast. Lambda Phi Epsilon’s leaders have always aspired to greater endeavors upon graduation, and it is home to countless individuals who stand as leaders in their respective industries. The opportunities for networking here are limitless, as you can be sure to find a Lambda almost anywhere you go.

Midwest Region with Cammy Lee
Providing services in the best interest of the community and University is one of Lambda Phi Epsilon’s primary purposes along with promoting Asian awareness. As the premier Asian-interest fraternal organization, Lambda Phi Epsilon chapters have been partnering up with the local Asian communities to give back to our roots. Chapters often participate in local Asian communities’ philanthropic effort as well as being involved with the ethnic student groups on-and-off campus to promote Asian traditions and cultures. Throughout the year, our members strive to give back to the community and University through participation in individual chapter service activities as well as regional service events, where all members from different chapters come together to make a greater impact. These charitable philanthropic events include, local community clean ups, serving food to the homeless, ecosystem rehabilitation on and off campus, tutoring elementary school students, donating to charitable causes such as the Toys for Tots Foundation, working with underprivileged children, volunteering in helping school sponsored events such as Open House Weekend, supporting and participating in other organizations’ Philanthropic and community service endeavors. These charities include Habitat for Humanity, AIDS Walk, Relay for Life, Special Olympics, as well as many others. To date, the countless hours dedicated to serving others by the members of Lambda Phi Epsilon have earned us both recognition and a positive image in the community and University.
UT Dallas – Saving The Lake
For Lambda Phi Epsilon’s national philanthropy, we work with the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP) to help save the lives of patients requiring bone marrow transplants and to help promote awareness for leukemia and other blood disorders. For individuals who suffer from this, their best matches for matched donors are those within their Asian community. The more people that register, the better the chances of finding a match for those in need.
In 1995, Evan Chen, a member of Theta Chapter at Stanford University, was diagnosed with leukemia. Their chapter, along with Evan’s friends, organized a joint effort to find a bone marrow donor. What resulted was the largest bone marrow typing drive in the history of the NMDP and Asian American Donor Program (AADP). In a matter of days, over two thousand people were typed. A match was eventually found for Evan, but unfortunately by that time the disease had taken its toll on him and he passed away in 1996. In Evan’s memory, the national philanthropy for Lambda Phi Epsilon was established and the fraternity has been working with the organization from that point on.
UC Santa Cruz – AADP Drive
Every Lambda Phi Epsilon chapter works with non-profit organizations such as AADP, Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches, and the Cammy Lee Leukemia Foundation to hold marrow typing drives on their campuses to encourage Asians and other minorities to register for the Be The Match Registry as potential bone marrow/stem cell donors. Since the fraternity’s inception, it has been able to register thousands of potential donors and counting.
The academic success of the fraternity members is a top priority of Lambda Phi Epsilon, and the opportunities that the organization provides to its members reflect its commitment to this goal. Lambda Phi Epsilon understands that its members are students first and provides recognition to those who excel and improve their academic standings. Each chapter helps further its members’ professional development and leadership skills necessary to succeed in both school and life. It is the fraternity’s goal to prepare the next generation of revolutionary leaders with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive in a constantly changing competitive world. Every Lambda will impelled to see learning as a lifelong pursuit and will be fully equipped with the tools, leadership, and mindset necessary to pursue their passions and dreams that lie ahead.
The biannual academic newsletter is compiled by the National Academics Chair to provide an update on the status of certain academic aspects of Lambda Phi Epsilon. In addition to providing a detailed assessment, the newsletter also recognizes graduating actives.
