Delta Tau Delta - Iota Phi was colonized at the University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire in 2011 by 11 men.  These men distinguished themselves by being committed to academics, community service, and leadership.  During the spring of 2013, after several benchmarks had been met, Delta Tau Delta - Iota Phi moved from a colony to official chapter status.  The move from colony to chapter gave the men a renewed energy for fraternity.  This was demonstrated through the men's commitment to truth, faith, courage and power, the pillars of the fraternity.
