In October 1998, Delta Epsilon Psi (D.E.Psi) became the first South Asian Service Fraternity in the southern region of the USA. D.E.Psi prides itself on aiding individuals reach their potential in the process of serving the needs of our community. As members, Brothers recognize and understand the power of unity amongst South Asians.Delta Epsilon Psi means more to us than simply being another organization or "club." Our fraternity is a family. Together we are driven to instill the virtues of brotherhood, discipline, and commitment within our members through various service and social activities. We were founded on the idea that together we can achieve greater success than when standing alone. Our goals are structured both for the growth of the fraternity, and the individual. We aim to provide a basic support network for members to succeed academically, to unite members with the community, to transcend religious and regional barriers within our community, and to create an awareness of South Asian needs and problems to the community.
Our goal is for our members to develop self-confidence, leadership qualities, social skills, and a belief in the potential and strengths of their abilities.One of the best qualities of Delta Epsilon Psi is the diversity of our members. We have successfully molded together the different nationalities, cultures, and religions into an active group of influential students. Our eclectic collection of individuals and personalities gives Delta Epsilon Psi a very unique perspective on the various issues and problems facing our society today.
In the Fall of 2007, the dream to bring Delta Epsilon Psi to Rutgers University was made possible by twelve young men. These twelve founding fathers envisioned a fraternity that rested on the pillars of brotherhood, discipline, and commitment. Driven by their desire for service, these men wanted to bring a voice to the South Asian community. On December 8th, 2007, the initial interest group was formed on the Rutgers University-New Brunswick campus. Throughout the following years, these men recruited others who had a similar vision on their campus. Together these men were forged into leaders and extended their involvement into other organizations. The establishment of Kappa Chapter became the stepping stone for the expansion of Delta Epsilon Psi throughout the Northeast region.
