Can a graduate student/professional woman become a member?
Yes. Lambda Pi Chi has several active Professional/Graduate Chapters. For more information please contact the Pi Chapter in your area or our Vice President of Expansion.  To see a list of our Graduate/Professional chapter locations, please click here.

  

What is the IÑACAS Program?

Four or more women at a four year college or university may apply to become member of our IÑACAS Program.  The IÑACAS Program is a time in which women are provided an opportunity to develop themselves as leaders on the college campus and the community.  A secondary benefit to participating in the program is that interested women in Lambda Pi Chi have an opportunity to interact on a personal level with members of the organization and gain a deeper understanding of Greek Life.
 
The IÑACAS Program is not an intake process; it is a completely voluntary, fun and informal program that lasts for approximately five weeks, and consists of a series of workshops and community service opportunities. The interested women participate in personal and professional development opportunities designed to promote individual learning and growth.  After successful completion of the IÑACAS Program the women who participated may apply to become members of the Sorority during the following academic semester.

 

If you are at a school that currently has an active chapter of Lambda Pi Chi, please be on the lookout for an Information Session being held at that chapter or contact chapter Hermanas for more information.  They will be able to inform you if the chapter is planning to conduct an IÑACAS Program.  If you would like to expand Lambda Pi Chi to your campus, the Vice President of Expansion will be able to inform you when the IÑACAS Program may be held.
 
If my school does not have a chapter of Lambda Pi Chi what is the process for founding a chapter?

If you are interested in expanding Lambda Pi Chi to your school, please contact our Vice President of Expansion via expansion@lambdapichi.org, or by submitting the form on the Interested Women section of this website.  She will take your information and also inform you of what the next steps of the expansion process are.  Five or more women are needed to begin the IÑACAS Program at a school that does not currently have a chapter of Lambda Pi Chi. 
 

Is there a minimum GPA requirement to become a member?
Yes.  As with all Latino Greek Organizations that are members of the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations, our umbrella organization, all new member must have a minimum of a 2.5 GPA cumulative GPA prior to joining.  Lambda Pi Chi additionally requires that all women interested in joining also have a 2.5 GPA the semester prior to Intaking.

May I join as a first year student?
No.  Lambda Pi Chi has always felt that all women need that first year to adapt to the changes involved in the transition to college lifeWe believe that the primary goal of all women attending an institution of higher learning should be to find success in in their academic goals; joining a sorority is a valuable, but secondary experience that should compliment and enrich a woman's academic success.  Please consider taking your first year to enjoy your new environment and research the different Greek-letter organization options available to you; it is our hope and belief that this will help you make the most of both your education and your life-time committment to whichever organization you chose.

May I be part of the IÑACAS Program during my first year?
Yes.  The IÑACAS Program is open to second semester first-year students.

Does Lambda Pi Chi have a brother fraternity?
No, we do not. One of the primary reasons for the founding of our sorority was to have a place for women that was created by women and focused on women. We believe that to have a brother fraternity would, in part, deter from this goal. We do, however, recognize the importance of working with all organizations in order to accomplish our goals and have developed relationships with many Greek-lettered organizations, both fraternities and sororities.
