In short, the Kappa Rho Chapter (KP) of Lambda Pi Eta of Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis pledges to provide educational and professional enhancement services to the Communication Studies students, the School of Liberal Arts, the IUPUI campus, the Indianapolis community and the Communication discipline.

In the summer of 2000 Jennifer Friel, a Communication Studies student, did extensive research under Dr. Schrader’s guidance. Her report provided a basis for the organizational by-laws.
