On 11 May 1951, our chapter was founded at what was then Kansas State Teachers College. Kappa Sigma Epsilon fraternity originally formed in 1916 affiliated with TKE as the Gamma Phi Chapter. 


The Gamma-Phi Alumni Association of Tau Kappa Epsilon at Emporia State University was installed as a chapter on September 1, 1991.

Since 1899, Tau Kappa Epsilon has never had an exclusionary clause for membership. TKE does not judge men on their wealth, rank or honor, but instead on their personal worth and character.

Our mission is to "to aid men in their mental, moral, and social development for life." In essence, we build Better Men for a Better World.
