A Lifetime of True Brotherhood

Lambda Chi Alpha's Core Values


Establishes the correct order of our obligations and commitments. Unswerving allegiance to the organization, and its laws, ideals and defining principles prevent us from misplacing our loyalties.


Delineates the sum total of all laws, rules, and customs that comprise our moral, organizational, and civic obligations. We expect all individuals to fulfill their obligations at minimum, and regularly expect individuals to far exceed their basic duty, especially in matters of ethics.


Denotes the regard and recognition of the absolute dignity that every human possesses. Specifically, respect indicates compassion for and consideration of others, including sensitive regard for their feelings and needs.

Service and Stewardship

Signifies the proper ordering of priorities. The welfare of the organization comes before the individual's personal gain. While the focus is on service to Lambda Chi Alpha and broader communities, this ideals also incorporates the concept of stewardship - holding something of value in trust for others.


Describes the complex of all values that make up the public code of the individual. Honor provides the motive for action and demands adherence to a public moral code not for recognition or reputation, but because it is the right thing to do.


Encompasses the sum total of an individuals private set of values or moral code. Integrity is the force that guides an individual's thoughts and actions, and is the true measure of his character.

Personal Courage

Depicts the premier virtue that enables us to persevere despite fear, danger, or adversity. Personal courage includes the notion of taking responsibility for decisions and actions. Additionally, it includes the ability to self-reflect, to confront new ideas, and to change.
