The fraternity movement of the 21st century continues the tradition of values based organizations that have prospered for nearly two centuries. Opportunities for leadership development, service, brotherhood, academic achievement, networking, and social engagement are offered through the fraternity movement. On nearly 800 campuses in the United States, Canada, and beyond, one can find a home away from home and an opportunity to belong to one of the world's largest lifelong, personal development organizations.
