The Elon University chapter was founded by Communications professor Dr. George Padgett in 1998. Lambda Pi Eta was founded in 1985 at the University of Arkansas and was endorsed by faculty and founder, Dr. Stephen A. Smith. There are over 400 active chapters across the country and world wide.

Lambda Pi Eta represents what Aristotle described in his book, Rhetoric, as the three ingredients of persuasion: Logos (Lambda) meaning logic, Pathos (Pi) relating to emotion, and Ethos (Eta) defined as character credibility and ethics. The goals of Lambda Pi Eta are to recognize, foster and reward outstanding scholastic achievement at Elon University.
