Procedures for Reactivating an Inactive Chapter

Thank you for your interest in reactivating an inactive chapter of the Phi Epsilon Kappa Fraternity at your college/university.  Membership in the Phi Epsilon Kappa Fraternity includes many benefits such as professional development and leadership skills, recognition for academic achievement, outstanding service and leadership.  Many new Phi Epsilon Kappa Fraternity chapters stem from a successful major's club, however that is not a requirement.

  • The college/university must offer a major and/or minor in a kinesiology-related field such as health, physical education, recreation, dance, athletic training, exercise science, sport management, allied health, rehabilitative science, and/or a related field.
  • The minimum admission requirements for students (undergraduate and graduate) include enrollment for at least one semester and a minimum of a "C" average in all coursework (chapters have the autonomy to raise these standards for academic performance and/or include a community service requirement for admission).
  • A faculty member from the college/university must be willing to serve as a Chapter Advisor.

Membership Fees:

  • Initiation Fee = $20.00 (paid at the time of initiation)
