Beta Theta Pi is dedicated to building men of principle for a principled life. Our brotherhood aids the individual, builds the Fraternity and strengthens the host academic institution through lifelong devotion to intellectual excellence, high standards of moral conduct and responsible citizenship.
Lifelong Friendship – Bonded by mutual obligations, oath and ritual, Betas form bonds of trust and friendship, which are the foundation of the Fraternity’s mission.
Cultivation of the Intellect – Beta membership encourages individual and chapter support of the academic mission and provides opportunities for co-curricular learning and personal growth.
Responsible Leadership – Betas participate in a system of self-governance, bound by trust and responsibility, which nurtures the development of social and leadership skills.
Responsible Personal Conduct – Beta Theta Pi is committed to standards of social conduct, which are guided by principles of urbane, civil, courteous and responsible deportment.
Commitment to Community – The experience of being a Beta encourages men to serve their university, fraternal and local communities
