Tau Delta Phi Fraternity is a “Fraternity of Firsts.” Throughout our history within the national fraternity movement, we have had a purpose more dynamic than most, and a direction that has always been exceptional.
Tau Delta Phi has the right of being called the always-inclusive fraternity. It was Tau Delta Phi that in 1945 allowed entrance to any man, regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, or religious beliefs.
This strong belief, stemmed from our founders, 9 Jewish college students who formed an organization because other fraternities would not allow them to become members. In our second century, we are proud that our executive council, national office and chapters continue to manifest our belief in an inclusive Fraternity that benefits the men on their campuses and our friends in the inter-fraternal movement.
