About Phi Chi Theta

Phi Chi Theta is a National coeducational Professional Fraternity in Business and Economics. Phi Chi Theta was founded on June 16, 1924 in Chicago, Illinois. The founders were six women from two of the competing business fraternities, Phi Theta Kappa and Phi Kappa Epsilon.

Today, the Phi Chi Theta National Chapter is comprised of 37 Collegiate and Alumni Chapters. Phi Chi Theta has over 20,000 members across the country. The National Chapter is the governing body of Phi Chi Theta and consists of the duly elected National Officers and National Delegates. The National Officers are deemed the Executive Council, and have the authority to administer the affairs of the Fraternity during the interim between Biennial National Chapter Meetings. Phi Chi Theta is a member of and affiliated with the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), the Professional Fraternity Association (PFA), and the Professional Fraternity Executive Association (PFEA).

Mission Statement

To promote the cause of higher business education and training for all individuals, to foster high ideals for everyone pursuing a career in business; to encourage fraternity and cooperation among people preparing for such careers; and to stimulate the spirit of sacrifice and unselfish devotion to the attainment of such ends.

Pillars

Professionalism

The Zeta Pi Chapter develops professionalism through guest speakers, lectures, workshops, and case competitions. We have connections to help you explore and grow in various industries, whether you're interested in marketing or finance or anything in between.

Community

A quickly growing chapter with 28 new members each year, we have a diverse community to help you succeed in your career. You are joining a network of dedicated and passionate individuals who are always willing to help a brother and provide guidance. We are family.

Philanthropy

The Zeta Pi chapter believes in giving back to the community and helping those less fortunate than us in order to grow our perspectives and create a more loving environment. We aim to improve the lives of the people around us through fundraisers and volunteering.

PD is about forming relationships. It’s about connecting with people, identifying with them so you can be inspired and influenced. You never know who might be the one to lead you down your career path, kickstart your dreams, or help you expand your vision. This is what PD can offer and what I hope to provide for every Phi Chi Theta member.

Guest Speakers

 

Phi Chi Theta provides numerous opportunities for networking and learning about careers through weekly lectures by industry professionals. This is a great opportunity not just for our members to find potential future employers, but also to ask questions of people who are at the center of the action at some of the biggest corporations in the nation.

Big Little

 

During their first year, members receive a "big" who acts as a mentor and support for them in any capacity they may need. The next year, members can return the favor by getting a "little" and mentoring them in turn. Pairings are based on mutual selections submitted after big-little "dates" in which members can get to know their prospective counterparts.

 


Social Events

 

Resource Exchange

 
Phi Chi Theta places value on participating in philanthropic events because it provides opportunities within our community by preventing and solving social issues.
— Erica Hsia, VP of Philanthropy 2016-18, Zeta Pi Chapter

Special Olympics

 

Phi Chi Theta is really excited to be working with the UW Special Olympics because we fully support the cause and will be able to see the local impact of our fundraisers. We can't wait to continue to build our relationship with the UW Special Olympic members and community!

The national Special Olympic games are being held at Husky Stadium in Summer of 2018, so much of our efforts this coming year will be dedicated towards helping plan that.
