We are Lambda Phi Epsilon of UCLA.
As the first of sixty chapters across the globe, we continue to pass down our legacy of strength, achievement, and brotherhood. Founded in 1981, Lambda Phi Epsilon is the largest Asian American Fraternity in the world.

On February 25, 1981, Mr. Craig Ishigo
and a group of eighteen dedicated men founded Lambda Phi Epsilon here at UCLA. Dissatisfied with the state of the Asian-Greek system, the founders led the way by inspiring Brotherhood within Lambda Phi Epsilon, which is now the largest Asian-American interest fraternity in the country. Since its founding, Lambda Phi Epsilon has spread like wildfire to schools around the nation. Within ten years, chapters were established at all of the UC's and most of the CSU campuses. By 1990, Lambda Phi Epsilon was officially recognized as a national organization by the North-American Interfraternity Conference (NIC) and since then, the fraternity has continued to grow and inspire the same ideals that all the brothers from around the country live by.
The encompassing motto of our fraternity is "To Be Leaders Among Men."
We not only seek to bring together a diverse group of men who share interests, concerns, backgrounds and cultures, but those who show the confidence of a leader.Grounded on the principles of wisdom, honor, and courage, our actives continue to teach young men the principles of leadership and strong moral character. Our alumni provide a way in which brothers may apply these beliefs and become true leaders of society. It is that unique life-long bond that makes Lambda Phi Epsilon the most respected and sought-after organization of its kind.

In 1996, Evan Chen, a brother from Stanford University, was diagnosed with leukemia.
All of the chapters of Lambda Phi Epsilon worked together to find a compatible match for a
bone marrow transfusion, a procedure that is possibly life-saving. Eventually, through the
efforts of the fraternity, family, and friends, a match was found, but Evan unfortunately
passed away before the surgery could be performed.
Through these circumstances, Lambda Phi Epsilon now works with the Asians for Miracle Marrow Matches (A3M) foundation for our national philanthropy. We continuously strive to help promote awareness for leukemia and other blood-related disorders as well as encouraging those of Asian descent to register for the bone marrow registry. Asians only make up a very small minority of registered possible bone marrow donors. As a result, those patients in need of a transplant simply cannot find one, as finding a match is highly selective in ethnic descent. We believe it is our duty to spread information on this live-saving action and encourage everyone to register. More information can be found at the A3M website.Our chapters holds bone marrow registry drives on campus several times annually and urges the UCLA student body to register and possibly save a life.
