The Pi Mu Epsilon Secretary-Treasurer maintains a list of inactive chapters. According to the Pi Mu Epsilon Constitution,
"[a]ny Chapter that fails to induct new members for a period of three consecutive years shall be deemed Inactive."
Once a Chapter has been declared Inactive, the Chapter may become Active by demonstrating to the satisfaction of the Pi Mu Epsilon
Council that the following conditions have been met:
- There is an enthusiastic faculty member willing to assume the role of Chapter Advisor.
- There is a faculty member willing to assume the role of Permanent Faculty Correspondent.
- The administration of the department and the institution is supportive of the goals of Pi Mu Epsilon.
- There is a sufficient number of students qualified for membership and interested in becoming members of the Chapter.
Inactive Chapters that believe these reactivation requirements can be met should contact the Pi Mu Epsilon President
. Once reactivation has been approved, the President will contact the
Chapter in writing.
The President may designate a member of Council to conduct the first induction ceremony of the reactivated Chapter. Expenses for such a visit are the responsibility of the reactivated Chapter.
Once reactivated, the Chapter is urged to apply for a National Lectureship Grant.
