Fraternity - Lambda Phi Epsilon, Inc.

Lambda Phi Epsilon was founded on February 25, 1981 by a group of nineteen dedicated men led by principal founder Mr. Craig Ishigo. Hoping to transcend the traditional boundaries of national origins, the founders aimed to create an organization that would set new standards of excellence within the Asian American community, develop leaders within each of the member’s respective community, and bridge the gaps between those communities. While the initial charter was comprised of Asian Pacific Americans, the brotherhood was open to all who were interested in supporting these goals. Mr. Craig Ishigo and Mr. Darryl L. Mu signed the charter as President and Vice President, respectively. Lambda Phi Epsilon’s vision is to become the preeminent international Asian interest fraternal organization, providing outstanding leadership, philanthropy, and advocacy in the community. The mission of the organization is to promote Lambda Phi Epsilon and its brothers by: - Developing active members to become leaders through training and hands-on experience, to advance personal growth, and to achieve academic excellence. - Perpetuating leadership of our alumni members in the community, creating opportunities, and encouraging the spirit of fellowship. - Promoting positive Asian American awareness and providing the highest level of philanthropy in the community.
