Alpha Psi Lambda Fraternity, is a co-educational, Latino-oriented Greek letter intercollegiate fraternity. It was the first such organization for Latino college students in the United States.

On March 10, 1985, at The Ohio State University, thirteen men and women were officially initiated into Alpha Psi Lambda. These individuals set the foundation for what is the nation's first and now largest co-ed Latino fraternity.


To promote continued personal and collective growth of our membership, success and unity through education, leadership, cultural awareness and community service.
