Founded at Yale University in 1895, Pi Lambda Phi (Pilam) was the first non-sectarian fraternity in the United States, accepting men of good character without regard to race or religion, striving to eliminate prejudice.
Today, Pilam chapters across the United States and Canada cultivate a brotherhood that promotes: academics, community service, philanthropic engagement, leadership development, financial responsibility, social skills, and lifelong relationships. These values help Pilam men to succeed as post-graduate professionals, and as active citizens leading courageously to eliminate prejudice in their communities.
The Pilam experience is offered to undergraduate members in an environment free from hazing and drug and alcohol abuse. Our members are all individually unique, but we are unified together through our commitment to our Creed and our values.
