Iota's Long Standing Commitment to Service
From the beginning of it's existence, IOTA PHI THETA® has sought to "Make a Difference." One of the very first activities of the newly-formed Iota was participation in the protests at the segregated Northwoods Shopping Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The founders of the Fraternity considered themselves "Militant" at a time when militancy was not an entirely popular stance.
This commitment to service has been a constant thread throughout the history of IOTA PHI THETA® and will continue to be manifested on both the National and Local levels of the organization.
Partial listing of involvements undertaken by IOTA PHI THETA® chapters includes:
- The NAACP
