Mission & Vision:

Pi Delta Psi is an Asian American Cultural Fraternity founded on February 20, 1994 at Binghamton University in Binghamton, New York. Since our founding, the primary mission of Pi Delta Psi has been to spread Asian American Cultural awareness in an effort to empower the entire Asian American community. We are guided by four pillars; Academic Achievement, Cultural Awareness, Righteousness, and Friendship/Loyalty.

Pi Delta Psi is also a founding member of the National APIA Panhellenic Association (NAPA).


Chapter History:

Pi Delta Psi Fraternity was founded by eleven men from various backgrounds (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino and Vietnamese). Already established leaders within their own university sponsored cultural organizations, these men assembled to devise a structure that would create an understanding between the various Asian cultures, build relationships extending beyond the academic years and most importantly, finding and building an individual’s skill sets. These eleven men envisioned an infrastructure that would continuously motivate and challenge individuals. This infrastructure of a fraternal society, which has been around since 1776 would become the building blocks of their endeavor.

Pi Delta Psi was founded on February 20, 1994 in Binghamton University, State University of New York. The eleven men were responsible for architecting the guiding principles, which have now developed into one of the nation’s largest Asian Cultural Interest Fraternities. 

Philanthropy:

The current national philanthropy of Pi Delta Psi is the Stop AAPI Hate Non-Profit Organization. Stop AAPI Hate is a nonprofit organization that runs the Stop AAPI Hate Reporting Center, which tracks incidents of hate and discrimination against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) in the United States. The organization was formed in 2020 in response to racist attacks on the Asian community as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stop AAPI Hate was founded by a consortium of three groups: the Asian Pacific Policy and Planning Council (A3PCON), Chinese for Affirmative Action (CAA), and the Asian American Studies Department (AAS) at the San Francisco State University, under the leadership of Manjusha P. Kulkarni, Cynthia Choi, and Russell Jeung. The consortium began its action in January 2020 as a response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Asian Americans, specifically news accounts of incidents of racially motivated violence. The group takes a grassroots approach to gathering data and providing these data to the general public and other advocacy groups.

The group began its focus on incidents occurring in California. Their researchers initially analyzed data from the end of January 2020 though the end of February 2020 from news sources reporting on xenophobia and COVID-19. The group then approached the governor of California and the state's Attorney General's Office requesting that state agencies respond to the increasing threat of discrimination. Although the governor and others in government decried the racism, they did not form a reporting center. Stop AAPI Hate subsequently formed a non-governmental community-based reporting system called the Stop AAPI Hate Reporting Center.

On February 23, 2021, the California legislature enacted the AB 85 law which includes funding of $1.4 million specifically to support Stop AAPI Hate's website, analysis and research.


The group operates a website which allows users to report an incident. The website also is a clearinghouse for reports and press releases with data generated from the reporting.
