Lambda Theta Phi, Latin Fraternity, Inc. was founded on December 1, 1975, at Kean College in Union, New Jersey. Lambda Theta Phi is a non-profit service/social fraternity emphasizing Latin unity and the celebration of the Latin culture. With its acceptance into the National Interfraternal Conference in 1992, Lambda Theta Phi became the first nationally recognized Latino Greek letter fraternity in the country. In 1994, with the release of The History of Lambda Theta Phi, Latin Fraternity, Inc., the fraternity became the first Latino fraternity to publish a historical account about its organization. The fraternity's goals are to promote scholarship, Latin unity, respect for all cultures and brotherhood. Lambda Theta Phi has set out to accomplish these goals through responsible political and social action. By working in the community, the fraternity hopes to not only provide service, but to also enhance the image of Latin culture and provide positive role models in the Latino community. Although Lambda Theta Phi is Latino by tradition, membership is open to all college males and the Brotherhood includes men representing nations of the world. Brothers of Lambda Theta Phi have gone on to become doctors, lawyers, scientists, accountants, engineers, recording artists, entrepreneurs, politicians and leaders in various areas. Lambda Theta Phi prides itself in the strength of its brotherhood and we believe that united there is nothing we cannot accomplish because in "unity there is strength". On November 19, 1995, the Omega Chapter of this fraternity was founded here at the University of Delaware to create opportunity for those Latinos and other individuals on campus who wanted to be involved and join in unification to celebrate their culture and common views. Here at the University of Delaware, the brothers are mentally strong individuals who are highly motivated and truly dedicated to accomplishing their overall goals in life. This fraternity is for those unique men who are willing to exceed the expectations and go above and beyond what is expected.
