The mission of Kappa Epsilon is to unite pharmacy students, faculty, and alumni dedicated to empower its members to achieve personal and professional competence, to develop leaders within the profession and community, and to provide professional and philanthropic services.

Collegiate Chapters

Becoming a Member of Kappa Epsilon typically begins at the collegiate level with entry into a Collegiate Chapter inducted at a college or school of pharmacy. A life journey, your participation as Kappa Epsilon Members places you among a long line of historic greats who have significantly contributed to various disciplines of pharmacy and many communities throughout the United States at the local and national levels.

Alumni Chapters

Alumni Chapters offer the opportunity for Kappa Epsilon Members to continue the fraternal bond and share involvement in National Projects that support the work of Breast Cancer Awareness, health care initiatives and community outreach. To date, Kappa Epsilon offers participation in fifteen active Alumni Chapters in major communities across the United States.


Each Collegiate Chapter is assigned a faculty Advisor by the Dean of the School or College of Pharmacy where the said chapter is established. The Chapter Advisor serves as a mentor and guide for each chapter throughout each academic year and is the cornerstone for consistency over time.

Start a Collegiate Chapter

Three prerequisites must be met at a college or school of pharmacy in order to proceed with the colonization process to induct the founding members and confirm status as a KE Collegiate Chapter.
