The Kappa Mu Epsilon (KME) is a honor society in Mathematics and is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. Its chapters are located in colleges and univerisities of recognized standing which offer a strong mathematics major. The chapters' members are selected from students of mathematics and other closely related fields who have maintained standard of scholarship, have professional merit, and have attained academic distinction.
The society is more than a group of chapters devoted solely to the election of honor students membership. Each chapter is encouraged to be a working organization throughout the academic year, functioning as an integral part of the mathematics department. It has grown steadily since its founding in 1931 and has over one hundred chapters and approximately sixty-seven thousand members nationwide, primarily at mid-sized public universiities or smaller private institutions.

The Kansas Delta Chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon was established at Washburn University on March 29, 1947. Since then, more than 650 students and faculty have become members of local chapter.
