Pi Kappa Phi to reopen Zeta Beta Chapter during Fall 2018

Earlier this spring, the university reached out to Pi Kappa Phi with an announcement that they would be opening for expansion. Shortly after that communication, the fraternity submitted materials to the university for review and as a result of their selection process was invited to campus for a presentation in late February. We were informed earlier this week that the fraternity was selected to re-establish the chapter in the fall 2018 semester.

At that time, staff members will arrive on campus and begin recruiting the re-founding members of the Zeta Beta chapter. The following sections highlight our expansion process as well as opportunities for involvement.

The Zeta Beta chapter has been closed since November of 1999 when the chapter surrendered its charter and thus began a 19 year absence from UCSD.

As outlined in our strategic plan, Uncommon Leadership, the national fraternity is committed to continued growth. According to Chief Operating Officer Christian Wiggins, “that growth will result in 210 chapters and associate chapters by 2020.” Wiggins continued, “We’re excited to return to UCSD and appreciate the partnership we’ve found in the students and staff.”
