Phi Eta Psi Fraternity became a reality on April 5th, 1965. Eight beautiful black young men known as the “Eternal Founding Fathers” came together to give birth to this eternal sacred brotherhood. C.S. Mott Community College in Flint, Michigan was the birthplace of Phi Eta Psi and will forever be reverently known as Alpha Chapter, the “Eternal Emerald”.


 These visionary men based the solidarity of the Fraternity on three main tenants:


   (1) To strive for and achieve academic excellence.


   (2) To instill and maintain a strong sense of self-pride, cultural growth and awareness.                                                                                                        

   (3) To foster economic growth, as well as social balance. 


     Committed to these tenants, these determined African-American men set out on the mission of establishing a fraternal brotherhood of men, spreading the inspirational message of Black Unity, cultural growth, leadership, economic empowerment, while simultaneously achieving success at all institutions of higher education.


     Phi Eta Psiis built on the foundation of true trust and belief in one's self and ones brother.  The everlasting fraternal bond of "Brotherhood" from one brother to another is a treasured experience. The realm of "Green and Gold" offers the opportunity to learn how to be a leader amongst leaders,

to be a productive member of a group and society, how to plan and follow through with goals and objectives, and how to evaluate and respond to different lifestyles and value systems.

     Strong academic achievement is valued and stressed within Phi Eta Psi.  Although a member's academic work is considered as personal and confidential, we provide help for any member who needs and desires it.

     We, the Imperial Men of Phi Eta Psi Fraternity, Inc. maintain our success of achievements through a “Fo’-Real” Incomparable Brotherhood that is matched only by the individual dedication of its members. Over decades of progress, we have only to look across the nation and experience the gratification of our efforts in expanding our sacred Brotherhood.

     Phi Eta Psi Fraternity, Inc., since its inception in 1965 has continued on the road of fraternity expansion. Phi Eta Psi Fraternity, Inc. has established undergraduate chapters, colonies, alumni chapters and at-large members throughout the United States and the world. Phi Eta Psi Fraternity, Inc. is determined to reach its ultimate goal in the quest to become “The Greatest Fraternity in the World” sm.
