Steps to Starting a Chapter

Phi Sigma Pi Membership is designed as a three-part approach for starting a Chapter on your campus. The steps for establishing a Chapter are;

  1. Individuals on your campus complete the Membership Program,
  2. Students expressing interest and who have completed the program will work alongside the National Office and other campus Members to prepare a petition,
  3. Petition the school for recognition.
