Alpha Psi Lambda (ΑΨΛ)
We are a Co-educational Fraternity geared towards the goals of Latino students on university campuses. As the fastest growing minority in this country, it is becoming more and more important that the Latino community continue their education. This trend has also brought with it a need for cultural awareness, cultural identity, and cross-cultural understanding. As a result, there is an increased need for Alpha Psi Lambda for which we try to assist in the identity of our culture. This trend has been demonstrated by the growth of our Fraternity.
While we are a Latino interest Fraternity, Alpha Psi Lambda has welcomed people from a broad spectrum of cultures across the globe. Alpha Psi Lambda stands as one family united. Our strength lies in our ability to focus on our culture while appreciating the diversity of others.
The Latino culture is very strongly rooted in family and support, which allows Alpha Psi Lambda to provide those same roots to our Fraternity. Alpha Psi Lambda, to its members, is more than just a Fraternity. It creates that true family support, brotherhood and sisterhood, at a time in a student's life when it is most important. Our membership prides itself on the values of Familia, Culture, Academics, Service and Leadership.
