Mission Statement
Statement of Purpose: The object of fraternity is to cement by closer bonds the ties of friendship formed between people of congenial temperaments and mutual interest, that through their college years, and in after years, they may be of assistance, gladly and cheerfully rendered, to one another. Viewed more broadly, history was made and civilization and culture advanced as the result of fraternal action by combined bodies of determined people. From time immemorial people have bound themselves together for the good of all; and when their cause has been just they have met with success.Alpha Theta seeks to create a unified fraternity that promotes the ideals of unity, loyalty, scholarship, integrity, and siblinghood. Its history reflects those ideals, and it hopes to carry them into the future
Unity: Alpha Theta seeks to create a unified fraternity by embracing, affirming, and appreciating individuality and diversity with respect to gender, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, class, and age
Loyalty: Alpha Theta seeks to create a strong bond of loyalty to the fraternity in each of its members by encouraging a spirit of voluntary, not obligatory, participation in the organization and its activities
Scholarship: Alpha Theta acknowledges its position within an academic community, valuing, respecting, and encouraging scholarship and intellectual pursuits
Integrity: Alpha Theta promotes the Dartmouth College Principle of Community and encourages its members to conduct themselves with honor in all matters, that integrity will occupy a secure position within them and the fraternity
Siblinghood: Alpha Theta promotes a strong spirit of siblinghood in its community through mutual respect and support among its members

History
The current incarnation of Alpha Theta began in the Spring of 1979, when a small, all-male fraternity was rushed by a large group of '82s. These people didn't like what the existing fraternities had to offer, they wanted an alternative; a house not quite the same as other fraternities, a place where men and women could work together and have fun. Following the block rush, the people who took over made Alpha Theta a coed organization during the winter of 1980. Previously, the fraternity was founded as a local fraternity named Iota Sigma Upsilon on March 3, 1920, by a group of seven students. In 1921 the fraternity received a charter as the Alpha Theta chapter of Theta Chi. The organization disassociated from Theta Chi in 1952 and re-incorporated as a local fraternity, adopting the name Alpha Theta
