Pi Mu Epsilon (PME) is a National Mathematics’ Honor Society dedicated to the promotion of mathematics and recognition of students who successfully pursue mathematical understanding. Since its foundation on May 25, 1914, at Syracuse University, the Society has grown to include over 360 chapters at colleges and universities throughout the United States.

The chapter at UMass Lowell was first established in 1978 by Professor Virginia Taylor, who was the faculty advisor for many years. When she retired, the chapter became inactive. The Massachusetts Delta Chapter was reactivated in 2007 by PME Council member Brigitte Servatius, Professor of Mathematical Sciences at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
