Dear the Tufts University Community,

Recently the Alpha Epsilon Pi Chapter on campus has made some very important decisions regarding the future of our fraternity and we wanted to let you know about them.

As a chapter, we pride ourselves on developing leaders within our community and the world. We hold our members to an extremely high standard and expect them to represent our chapter well. We welcome any individuals willing to commit to our mission of giving back to the community and our ethos of brotherhood.

We strongly believe in diversity of race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, background and beliefs. This diversity provides individuals with the tools necessary to succeed as leaders in the modern world.

Recently we have come to realize our long-term goals do not align with those of our national organization. In a unanimous vote our chapter decided to disaffiliate ourselves from Alpha Epsilon Pi’s International Headquarters. We are excited to move forward and continue our mission of developing future leaders on campus.

We are transitioning to become a Tufts-based fraternity, with a new name, with the goal of re-affiliating with a different national fraternity or maintaining our independent status. We are proud of our members and thankful for the Tufts administration and many leaders in the community who have fully supported our right to be recognized as an independent organization.

Sincerely,

The Former Members of Alpha Epsilon Pi Fraternity
