Regional & National Conventions
The Kappa Mu Epsilon (KME) is a honor society in Mathematics and is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Its chapters are located in colleges and universities of recognized standing which offer a strong mathematics major. The chapters' members are selected from students of mathematics and other closely related fields who have maintained standard of scholarship, have professional merit, and have attained academic distinction.
Election to membership in Kappa Mu Epsilon is independent of membership in any other organization, and no one shall be disqualified on the basis of sex, race, creed, or color. Members may transfer their affiliation from one chapter to another by presenting credentials of membership in good standing.
The society is more than a group of chapters devoted solely to the election of honor students membership. Each chapter is encouraged to be a working organization throughout the academic year, functioning as an integral part of the mathematics department. It has grown steadily since its founding in 1931 and has over one hundred chapters and approximately sixty-seven thousand members nationwide, primarily at mid-sized public universities or smaller private institutions.
