Delta Epsilon Psi National South Asian Fraternity Inc was founded on October 1, 1998 at the University of Texas at Austin. 18 men came together sensing the urgency of a unified South Asian voice at their university. They believed that there was a lack of South Asian presence not only in the Greek community, but also at their university and their local community. With this in mind, they founded Delta Epsilon Psi on our three pillars: brotherhood, discipline and commitment. The founders believed that by establishing this organization they would be able to break away from traditional South Asian stereotypes and give back to the community through their service and social based endeavors.
Delta Epsilon Psi prides itself as an organization that puts service first with its rich tradition of outstanding philanthropic efforts. Delta Epsilon Psi has established research towards finding a cure for Juvenile Diabetes (Type 1 Diabetes) and supporting the National Marrow Donor Program as its primary National Philanthropies. Its efforts are geared towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) and the Be The Match Foundation to promote its goals. Delta Epsilon Psi encourages its brothers to actively engage the community and promote the awareness and education of Type 1 Diabetes. Through these efforts, chapters of Delta Epsilon Psi from around the nation have been able to create various events, such as the “Sugar Free Bowl,” Dodging Diabetes,” “Dash for Diabetes,” and many more, to promote awareness of the disease, as well as raise thousands in funds for JDRF annually. Due to these outstanding efforts, the fraternity became official partners with JDRF, being the first fraternity to have this partnership with JDRF.
Since its founding in 1998, Delta Epsilon Psi has become the Largest and Fastest Growing fraternity of its kind.
