Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Incorporated (ΙΦΘ) is a nationally incorporated, historically African-American, collegiate fraternity whose purpose is the development and perpetuation of Scholarship, Leadership, Citizenship, Fidelity and Brotherhood among Men. It was founded on September 19, 1963, at Morgan State University (then Morgan State College) in Baltimore, Maryland.
Since its founding date, Iota Phi Theta has continued to grow and has become the fifth-largest and fastest growing predominantly black fraternal organization in the United States. As of now, there are over 30,000 members in the US and overseas. A key appeal of Iota Phi Theta is that, as an organization, it refuses to have its members bind themselves to a defined fraternal image but celebrates the individuality of its members. More importantly, its members continue to build upon the fraternity’s commitment to success and excellence with individual and collective achievements in such fields as politics, education, law, business, healthcare and the performing arts.
