Kappa Mu Epsiloncrest

KME is a nationally recognized honors society. KME was granted membership into the Association of College Honor Societies in 1968. The Louisiana Delta Chapter was established at ULM in 2001. Membership in KME is viewed highly by employers, as well as professional and graduate schools.

The primary purposes of being a member of Kappa Mu Epsilon include the following:

  1. to further the interests of mathematics;
  2. to help students realize the important role that mathematics has played in the development of civilization;
  3. to develop an appreciation of the power and beauty possessed by mathematics, due, mainly, to its demand for logical and rigorous modes of thought;
  4. to provide a society for the recognition of outstanding achievement in the study of mathematics;
  5. to disseminate the knowledge of mathematics and familiarize its members with the current progress in this important area of human interest.



There is a one-time national membership fee of $20. This fee required by the national organization is essentially returned to the new members in the following forms: membership certificates and cards, key pin jewelry, a two-year subscription to the society’s journal, delegate money to national conventions, etc. There are no local dues for membership.
