Kappa Alpha Psi was founded on January 5, 1911 on the campus of Indiana University, by ten illustrious men. It was later chartered and incorporated on May 5, 1911 with its fundamental purpose being Achievement in Every Field of Human Endeavor.
Kappa Alpha Psi is now comprised of over 750 active undergraduate and alumni chapters worldwide. The fraternity has adopted five core objectives as well as guidelines detailing what qualities persons interested in membership should strive to achieve. Gaining membership into the fraternity is a lifelong dedication to the ideals and lofty purposes of Kappa Alpha Psi. Therefore, we are not interested in the simple accumulation of members. We place emphasis on their quality and integrity.
The Xi Beta chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi is the first historically black fraternity founded on the campus of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and it continues to run the yard. Xi Beta members share a common vision to exemplify professionalism in both academics and their relation to the Embry-Riddle community, while striving to maintain a balance of chapter business and campus awareness. With the philosophy of PHI NU PI as its backbone, the Xi Beta chapter prepares its members for achievement in the aviation industry and beyond.
