Core Values of Phi Kappa Psi


When brothers serve together, they are accomplishing something for the common good while also bonding to create lasting memories. There are many ways to build brotherhood within Phi Psi, but one of the most important is by working with a group of brothers with similar values. The experiences brothers share while serving others dates back to our founders and will always remain an important aspect of the Phi Kappa Psi brotherhood.

Service to the Community

Phi Kappa Psi was founded upon “The Great Joy of Serving Others.” This mission is put into action through service to the community and philanthropy by giving time to a group or person without receiving anything in return. As Phi Psis, we give back by devoting our collective time and energy to causes that matter in our communities, and combining both to advocate for the betterment of others.

Academic Excellence

Nothing is more critical to your future than learning how to study and make the most of your scholastic potential. As a brother of Phi Kappa Psi, you will be required to exceed in academics and maintain a favorable GPA by actively developing critical skills. By doing so, you can face and overcome the challenges of college while growing yourself. Continued success of the Fraternity means that members constantly raise standards and work toward greater goals.

Respect for the Dignity of Others

We believe that you have the potential to be successful, which is why we work to provide information, resources and support to help you become the best version of yourself. When you understand how to take care of yourself, you can be there for others when they need you most. As a member of Phi Kappa Psi, you are surrounded by brothers who care and are committed to your success. You also will have access to information and resources to help you address issues on campus.

Personal Integrity

Honesty and accuracy of one's actions are the pillars of personal integrity. As part of the oath of Phi Kappa Psi membership, brothers are expected to uphold personal integrity by acting as true gentlemen and doing what is right and good at all times acting as true gentlemen by doing what is right and good at all times. Having personal integrity means that you are true to yourself and would do nothing that dishonors or demeans you or your brothers.
