Kappa Psi (ΚΨ) is the oldest and largest professional pharmaceutical fraternity in the world. It was founded on May 30, 1879, by F. Harvey Smith on the campus of Russell Military Academy in New Haven, Connecticut. The Central Office of Kappa Psi is located at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford, Oklahoma. Kappa Psi first chartered a Chapter at a College of Pharmacy in 1898 at Columbia University. At that time Kappa Psi was a medical and pharmaceutical Fraternity. In 1924, the fraternity split into Kappa Psi and Theta Kappa Psi, the medical fraternity. Currently, there are 70 active collegiate chapters and 44 graduate chapters across the United States and Canada.

In 1976, Kappa Psi admitted females into the fraternity, and now the vast majority of the member chapters are co-ed. Those chapters that remain all-male have done so because of the strong activity of other professional fraternities and sororities on campus who attract those interested in alternative bases of membership, such as co-ed or all-female.
