The mission of Phi Psi Lambda Leadership Society, Inc. is to increase, encourage, and support the inclusion, retention and graduation rates, and the overall educational success of male students from groups that are severely underrepresented in higher education, in particular African, African American/Black, Caribbean and Latino/Hispanic males. The organization seeks to accomplish this through identifying, developing, and educating male students-of-color into leaders through the promotion of a deeper understanding of leadership and provision of visibility of student leaders, both on college campuses and globally, by unleashing their leadership potential to transform lives and become great mentors to future student leaders.
Phi Psi Lambda Leadership Society, Inc.’s vision is to create academic, intellectual, career, and social model projects that become pathways to academic achievement, increased graduation rates, and social and cultural development.
Phi Psi Lambda members represent the highest standard of Love, Respect, Wisdom, Courage, Honor, Discipline, Excellence, Patience, and Sacrifice.
Phi Psi Lambda members represent the most ambitious and goal-oriented among their peer group. Phi Psi Lambda members are presidents of honor societies, members of student governing boards, scholars, student ambassadors of national organizations, honorees by city municipalities, entrepreneurs, and campus and community leaders.
Phi Psi Lambda members have presented at regional and national conferences, conducted leadership development workshops, and organized and planned leadership conferences for high school students.
Our members live by the principle of Sacrifice through Service. Our community service and social model projects become pathways to improving and inspiring the lives of those that we touch. We are service-driven Leaders; service-driven Gentlemen.
Phi Psi Lambda members believe in being a person for others. Our members participate in community service projects and collaborate with organizations that address the fundamental educational, professional, cultural, social and overall basic human needs of the underserved and underrepresented communities.
"As a young adult, it is important to have people around you that can open your mind and make you aware of your boundless potential and the limitless opportunities of the world. As an engaged Summer Intensive student, I was provided that awareness and use it to create platforms of success that have led me 800 miles away, from Bergen Community College to Columbia College Chicago in Chicago, Illinois. From President of Society of Leaders (S.O.L) to Record Executive of AEMMP Record Label; the longest running student-run record label in the country. I’ve learned the importance of not only doing what it takes to be a successful student-leader, but by sharing my experiences with those who seek to grow into their own leadership."
