Kappa Epsilon was founded on May 13, 1921 by Zada M. Cooper with the purpose of uniting females in the field of pharmacy when women were a minority in the profession. The KE motto “Cogito Ergo Sum,” meaning “I think, therefore I am,” inspires members to grow both personally and professionally while upholding the unsaid standard of excellence existing within the foundations of pharmacy. Today, the fraternity encourages both men and women to join the 20,000+ members/alumni in any one of the 43 collegiate chapters or 10 alumni chapters.
Mu Chapter History: The Mu Chapter was installed at the University of Kansas in Lawrence on May 13, 1942. Mu Chapter is the 6th oldest active chapter of the fraternity.
