Lambda Pi Eta (LPH) is the National Communication Association’s official honor society at four-year colleges and universities. LPH has more than 450 active chapters at four-year colleges and universities nationwide.
LPH became a part of the National Communication Association in 1988, and the association's official honor society in July 1995. It is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS).
LPH represents what Aristotle described in The Rhetoric as three ingredients of persuasion: logos (Lambda), meaning logic; pathos (Pi), relating to emotion; and ethos (Eta), defined as character credibility and ethics.
The Six Goals of Lambda Pi Eta:
- Recognize, foster, and reward outstanding scholastic achievement in Communication Studies;
- Stimulate interest in the field of Communication;
- Promote and encourage professional development among Communication majors;
- Provide an opportunity to discuss and exchange ideas in the field of Communication;
- Establish and maintain closer relationships between faculty and students; and
