Iota Far West Region (FWR) - Who are we?!

Far West Region *****AT A GLANCE*****

The FAR WEST REGION (originally, the West Coast Region) of IOTA PHI THETA® FRATERNITY, INC. Was established on June June 18, 1983 by Brother Robert Clark (Alpha Lambda Chapter, University of Illinois).  The founding chapters were ALPHA CHI (San Francisco State University) and XI OMEGA (San Francisco Alumni).  Besides actualizing the Fraternity Motto, "BUILDING A TRADITION, NOT RESTING UPON ONE", the FAR WEST REGION also abides by its own adopted precepts: "SOCIAL SERVICE, PROFESSIONALISM, BROTHERHOOD".
