Phi Sigma Rho (ΦΣΡ), also known as Phi Rho or PSR, is a social sorority for women in science, engineering, and engineering technologies. The sorority was founded in 1984 at Purdue University. The first chapter of Phi Sigma Rho was installed on September 24, 1984, with 10 charter members. It has since expanded across the United States.
Phi Sigma Rho Headquarters are located in Northville, Michigan. The sorority is actively expanding in the United States and Canada.
Phi Sigma Rho was founded in 1984 by Rashmi Khanna and Abby McDonald at Purdue University. Khanna and McDonald were unable to participate in traditional sorority rushes due to the demands of their engineering program, so they decided to start their sorority instead. The Alpha chapter was founded with ten charter members: Gail Bonney, Anita Chatterjea, Ann Cullinan, Pam Kabbes, Rashmi Khanna, Abby McDonald, Christine Mooney, Tina Kershner, Michelle Self, and Kathy Vargo.
Since the founding of the Alpha chapter in 1984, Phi Sigma Rho has grown to forty-six chapters nationally.
Phi Sigma Rho accepts students pursuing degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics who identify as female or who identify as non-binary.
 Phi Sigma Rho is a social sorority for women in engineering and engineering technology serving members and the community by promoting:
Through shared experiences, common bonds, and recognition of service and achievement.
Each woman admitted to membership in Phi Sigma Rho is believed to be: A woman of good character... with friendly personality and encouraging disposition A student of scholarship... with the ingenuity, ambition, inner strength and endurance to meet life's challenges An individual possessed of optimism and respect for diversity...having a deep sense of personal responsibility, integrity and loyalty.
The objectives of the Sorority, which apply to all members, are:
Phi Sigma Rho was founded in 1984 as a social sorority for women in engineering and engineering technology. United by the common goal of our profession, we work to balance the demands of our major with the fun of Greek life. With camaraderie and the support of our sisters, we come together to create an energy that amplifies for the purpose of lifting up our sisters, our colleges and our communities to unprecedented heights. PhiRho: Re-Engineering Sorority Life.
Each year Phi Sigma Rho searches for new members who uphold our values of friendship, scholarship, and encouragement through the Phi Rho Way. Membership in Phi Sigma Rho connects you to an entire network of like-minded individuals who lift one another up to unprecedented heights. If you're looking for a life experience instead of only an education, consider joining Phi Sigma Rho to meet not only your sisters, but your people.
How do I start a new chapter? Phi Sigma Rho is always seeking opportunities for growth. Through our growth process, we carefully evaluate potential new colleges and universities and lead interested students through the process of becoming a chapter.
If you attend a school where a Phi Sigma Rho chapter has not previously existed and are interested in starting a chapter on your campus, we encourage you to reach out to our Headquarters Staff or Vice President of Extension to get started.
