GXP was established at Ramapo College in Mahwah, New Jersey on October 7, 2010, on the principles of Philanthropy, Sodality, and Elevation.
The purpose of Gamma Xi Phi is to honor the achievements of artists through fellowship, philanthropy, social justice, and service.
Gamma Xi Phi promotes philanthropy and service to the arts, brotherhood among all artists, and leadership development in artistic professions through collegiate and community outreach to people of color across the world.
Our purpose and mission are exemplified through our National Program, which is themed The Design of a Decade: Art, Society, & Justice. This theme celebrates our tenth anniversary as an organization while promoting the intersections in which we live and serve. Gamma Xi Phi believes in art as a means of advancing and enriching society as well as a means of advancing issues of justice within our communities.
