Historical NoteReturn to Top

Mu Phi Epsilon is a coeducational, professional music fraternity (before 1977 it was limited to women). Mu Phi Epsilon was founded by Dr. Winthrop S. Sterling and Elizabeth Mathias Fuqua on November 13, 1903, at the Metropolitan College of Music, Cincinnati, Ohio. The Fraternity membership is composed of collegiate chapters, alumni chapters and allied members.

The University of Oregon's Nu chapter was created in the early to mid 1900's. It became inactive for many years before reemerging in 2009.
