Lambda Phi Epsilon is an international Asian-interest fraternity. The organization was founded on February 25, 1981 at the University of California, Los Angeles by 19 men. Their goal was to set new and higher standards of excellence for all Asian-interest organizations and transcend the limitations that traditional Asian American organizations face.
On February 14, 1999, 12 men founded the Alpha Zeta Chapter at the University of Washington, establishing Lambda Phi Epsilon's first chapter in the Pacific Northwest and the first Asian American fraternity to be established on the Seattle campus of UW. Today, they continue to set higher standards for brotherhood, leadership, and philanthropy for other Asian interest fraternities that followed.
