Our Delt Creed describes Delta Tau Delta as a shrine of International brotherhood…

…our cornerstone is friendship:

Delta Tau Delta aspires to be an organization comprised of a diverse group of individuals who are all committed to a shared Mission and Values.

Our Mission is “Committed to Lives of Excellence” – we challenge our members to engage in a lifelong journey in pursuit of excellence and service to others.
Our Values serve as our fundamental principles across all challenges in life
  • Truth requires us to be honest with ourselves and hold each other accountable
  • Courage inspires us to take on the greatest challenges and make difficult choices
  • Faith commands us to learn and live the truth, be confident in our actions, and honor all people
  • Power demands us to harness our inner strength to improve ourselves and our communities
  • Integrity is essential and requires our actions and behavior be fully compatible with our Oath and Ritual
  • Accountability is fundamental to all commitments, including the commitment of our organization and each member to the ideas of diversity, equality, and inclusion
  • Lifelong learning and growth are vital to enhance our pursuit of excellence through the exploration of new concepts and continuous improvement
  • Strengthening community is essential to our vitality and means our actions and behaviors should enhance the activities and culture of the total community - our campuses, the Greek system, our neighbors, our countries, and the world
  • Brotherhood sustains us through our commitment to honoring the unique and diverse nature of all our members and taking actions that are inclusive and understanding
Our Members include all those individuals who are fully initiated, as well as those new members who are committed to learning and fully accepting the meaning of our Mission, Values, and Ritual.
We use the terms Brother and Brotherhood affectionately to refer to the initiated members in our Fraternity.
Our Delt Family includes all those individuals who are not members, but who share an affinity for Delta Tau Delta and commitment to its ideals. We celebrate our staff, campus partners, and advisors in advancing our mission. We cherish the parents, sweethearts, spouses, children, family, and friends who love and support our Members.

…our foundation is conscience:

Strengthening Community is Essential to our Vitality and we must interact with a diverse group of people from a broad set of communities during our journey toward Excellence
