We are the Chi Chapter of Pi Delta Psi, the first and only Asian-interest fraternity at the University of South Florida, founded in November 10, 2008.
Our goal is to instill in ourselves the Four Pillars of Academic Achievement, Cultural Awareness, Righteousness, and Friendship/Loyalty while fostering ethical behavior, leadership, and philanthropy.
Our organization was founded on these principles to help promote a deeper understanding of Asian culture among ourselves and throughout the community. We believe that through education, we can become more knowledgeable about the different Asian cultures, overcome obstacles of racism and discrimination, therefore unifying us as a whole.
We envisioned this to be possible by going out of the boundaries of an organization and creating a fraternity on the basis of common goals and ideals in the form of a brotherhood.

Our National Philanthropy
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers Big Sisters has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”), ages 6 through 18, in communities across the country. We develop positive relationships that have a direct and lasting effect on the lives of young people.
Starting Fall 2017, The Asia Foundation will be our new official philanthropy. The Asia Foundation improves lives, expands opportunities, and helps societies flourish across a dynamic and developing Asia. They work with innovative leaders and communities to build effective institutions and advance pathbreaking reforms. They are committed to Asia’s continued development as a peaceful, just, and thriving region of the world.
Pi Delta Psi Fraternity was founded by eleven men from backgrounds of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino and Vietnamese in February 20, 1994. Already established leaders within their own university-sponsored cultural organizations, these men assembled to devise a structure that would create an understanding between the various Asian cultures, build relationships extending beyond the academic years and most importantly, finding and building an individual’s skill sets.
With branches in 25 universities nationwide, Pi Delta Psi is one of the fastest-growing Asian American fraternities in the U.S. today. What began as a dream for the eleven founders, has become the work and dedication of hundreds across the country and across seas. For more information, please visit our national website.
