Delta Tau Chapter History
The Delta Tau chapter at Indiana State University was chartered on April 7, 1990, and began in 1987 by Dan Bravard and his brother Darien, who was already a member of Sig Tau from the Beta Theta Chapter at Purdue. The chapters origins began in 1987, with a group of 15 men, starting on the second floor of Dan’s residence hall. By the end of 1988, over 25 Founding Fathers had been initiated into the brotherhood.
in 1989, the Delta Tau Chapter was officially recognized by the Indiana State IFC, and with the leadership of then President Lenell Clay, secured a fraternity floor in a residence hall and added eight additional associate members.
Delta Tau Chapter is a proud two-time tug of war champions and were recent winners of the intramural basketball.
The chapter’s alumni have a very diverse line of work. Some of the alumni are in the law enforcement protecting citizens, some are pilots, and some are in technology.
The Delta Tau Chapter is very active in various fundraising events helping the Special Olympics. Because Indiana State University helped found the Special Olympics program in the state of Indiana, it means a great deal for the Delta Tau Chapter to help any way they can.
A Chapter Fund is a restricted account from the Sigma Tau Gamma Foundation. In this case, the restriction is that the funds and earnings on the investment of the funds may be used only for a particular chapter, meaning that if you donate to your chapter’s fund, it may only be used for your chapter.
Chapter Funds may be used to:
- Award scholarships based on academic and leadership criteria
- Technology grants for purchase and upgrade of chapter computer technology
- Educational facility grants to the selected chapter
- Leadership education grants for participation in institutes, seminars, and conventions.
The Foundation manages the fund. This management includes fund accounting, investing, and preparing required reports for the Internal Revenue Service. The policy of the Foundation Board of Trustees is to involve chapter alumni association leaders in the creation of criteria, formation of program priorities and selection of grant recipients.
