Iota Nu Delta (ΙΝΔ), is a South Asian interest fraternity geared towards men of all descents. It was founded on February 7, 1994, by a group of eight men of South Asian descent at Binghamton University, in Binghamton, New York. The group's goal was to "bridge the gaps between people of different backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures by having them interact with their respective communities, and encourage cultural awareness through affiliation with a fraternal organization."[1]

Creed

               We, the brothers of the Iota Nu Delta Brotherhood, have established this organization for the purposes of promoting and advancing the cultural diversity found on college campuses. The Iota Nu Delta Fraternity is South Asian based, but is not, nor ever will be exclusive to men of South Asian origin. Our Brotherhood seeks to encompass all individuals and will not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, creed, ethnicity, orientation, or any physical handicaps.
               Discrimination of any type would go against the very core of our purpose and would promote elements of intolerance and destroy the unity that we seek to create. We seek to enhance and develop the leadership qualities of our brothers to prepare them for the world of tomorrow. With this goal in mind we prioritize the rigors of religion, family, and academia in addition to our brotherhood.
               We shall not condone nor will ever tolerate any method that would be contrary to the principles of our fraternity and our purpose of creating unity. We will not accept or tolerate any forms of hazing or intolerant modes of behavior. No potential member will be subjected to any activity that is degrading or hazardous. We seek to create a strong bond among the brothers of this Fraternity.
