List of Colonies of Phi Sigma Kappa

Interest groups may form Colonies, which in turn become Chapters as they earn a Phi Sigma Kappa Charter from the International Headquarters. A charter is a document which conveys from a governing body to a local group permission to operate as a chapter. A PSK Charter also signifies the date and location of the new chapter, and lists its founding members. In the event of a re-colonization, a new group may still refer to the original date of charter when citing the age of their chapter, even if theirs is a re-colonization.

Expansion Program

Phi Sigma Kappa supports a vigorous expansion program of two to four new chapters a year. Phi Sigma Kappa's new colonization efforts typically follow one of three methods:

  • At the request of a viable interest group
  • By affiliation of an existing local fraternity into Phi Sigma Kappa
  • As the result of planned expansion efforts by Headquarters staff.

The Fraternity takes special interest in re-chartering chapters at schools where it previously had a chapter. In such cases, significant funds may be available to support housing or scholarships that have been held in trust, awaiting re-colonization, by alumni of the original chapter.

The Fraternity maintains several full-time staff members dedicated to expansion and the support of interest groups, colonies and new chapters.

Naming Rules

Interest groups are named after the school. Re-colonized groups may refer to themselves by the original chapter designation (name), with the word "Colony" appended. Colonies at schools where Phi Sigma Kappa has not had a presence will be awarded a chapter designation from the main naming sequence as their induction ceremony nears. Regarding the 1985 merger, in cases where an original Phi Sigma Kappa chapter as well as a Phi Sigma Epsilon chapter were present on campus but where both are now dormant, the designation of any new group would normally be the name of the older original chapter. See also main section on Naming System

Where there is lack of progress or low membership, unsuccessful colonies may be disbanded before receiving a charter.

  • a. ^ The Tau chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa separated from the national organization in 1956 over the issue of racial discrimination and became Phi Tau coeducational fraternity. Two months later, the short-lived policies that incited the separation were themselves dropped, and Phi Sigma Kappa became one of the first fraternities to welcome black students.
  • b. ^ The Epsilon Kappa chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa separated from the national organization in 1998 and became a local organization called Phi Sigma Chi fraternity. This is not to be confused with the NY-based multicultural fraternity of Phi Sigma Chi, with which the Stevens Point chapter has no connection. This now-local chapter has disbanded.
  • c. ^ These three chapters did not participate in the merger between Phi Sigma Kappa and Phi Sigma Epsilon. A total of seven (these three, plus a schismatic group of PSE Lambda alumni who didn't transition into the new Epsilon Lambda, plus three revived chapters) would go on to form Phi Sigma Phi fraternity. Further discussion on the Talk page.
  • d. ^ Cornell was the only school with both a Phi Sigma Kappa and Phi Sigma Epsilon chapter when the two fraternities merged. Phi Sigma Epsilon's Phi Tau chapter was therefore released to join another national fraternity. It opted to disband, and the building was sold to Alpha Chi Omega sorority.
  • e. ^ Both Phi Sigma Kappa and Phi Sigma Epsilon had chapters at Ferris State University. The Phi Sigma Kappa chapter closed in 1978. Phi Sigma Epsilon's Sigma Epsilon chapter became the Sigma Epsilon chapter of Phi Sigma Kappa when the two fraternities merged.
  • f. ^ The Sigma Zeta chapter of Phi Sigma Epsilon did not participate in the merger with Phi Sigma Kappa. It eventually became a chapter of Phi Sigma Phi but was then re-founded as a colony of Phi Sigma Kappa in 1996.
  • g. same name.
  • h ^ 1952's "Bedford Resolution" was one of the reasons that led to the expulsion of Mu Triton at Boston University, which lost its charter in 1954. Similarly, Beta Triton seceded back to local status in 1955. Hartwick College's Nu Triton was closed for the same reason, also in 1955.
  • i ^ There exists some confusion regarding two chapters named Phi Tau. ΦΣΕ's Phi Tau chapter at Cornell was existent from 1963 until the merger in 1985 when it disbanded in favor of the Fraternity's retaining the elder, original Gamma chapter of ΦΣΚ. This group should not be confused with ΦΣΚ's Tau chapter at Dartmouth, which, upon seceding from the national fraternity in 1956, renamed itself Phi Tau. Name similarity is purely coincidental.
