Rho Pi Phi International Fraternity (ΡΠΦ) is a co-ed professional fraternity that dedicates itself to the profession of pharmacy. It was founded in 1918 on the campus of Massachusetts College of Pharmacy as the Ram Bam pharmaceutical Society. However, in the following year, its members agreed to form Rho Pi Phi, a pharmaceutical fraternity. Rho Pi Phi was founded to promote friendship, professionalism, and community service. Today, it is currently an international fraternity with 20 Chapters in the United States and Canada. It is also a member of the Professional Fraternity Association.

The thirteen founders and charter members of Rho Pi Phi were: Joseph Dunn, Hyman Wolf, Ralph Polian, Samuel Deutchman, Isaac Weiser, Samuel Nannis, Samuel Greenberg, Israel Stone, Robert Goodless, Irving Zolotoy, Max Stoller, and Louis Tankel.

These thirteen men felt the impact of segregation and therefore formed a non-sectarian organization.

The Constitution was adopted in the year 1922.


...To maintain the ethical standards, diginity of, and pride in the most ancient and honorable profession of pharmacy.
...To contribute to the moral, social, and intellectual welfare of all students in Pharmacy.
...That we may take the lamp of research into the dark recesses of things unknown and make our contribution to our fellow man.
