Triangle’s Mission

All Triangle Fraternity men strive to be leaders on their campuses, in the local community, and within their chosen fields of studies. In order to do so, we must carry out Triangle’s purpose:

The purpose of Triangle shall be to maintain a Fraternity of engineers, architects, and scientists. It shall carry out its purpose by establishing Chapters that develop balanced men who cultivate high moral character, foster lifelong friendships, and live their lives with integrity.


In accordance with the Fraternity’s purpose, the objectives of Triangle Fraternity are identified as follows:

To help develop the highest standards of personal integrity and character;
To foster and provide an intellectual, mature environment for its members through group effort and the mutual companionship of men with similar professional goals;
To foster and provide the broadening experience of fraternity living with its social & moral challenges and responsibilities for the individual & Chapter;
To recognize and support the objectives and goals of the alma mater and those of the community through responsible participation and action;
To help bridge the gap between undergraduate study and the vocation of the individual in industry, the academic world, or government;
To foster and maintain a bond of fraternal brotherhood through a continuing program of activity for the alumni; and
To bring into focus the elements of planned progress for the betterment of mankind.

All Triangle brothers hold themselves to high moral standards in order to be the best men they can be in helping build a better world for tomorrow.  Triangle’s Code of Ethics – one of the “blueprints” left by the Founders – reflects our Fraternity’s beliefs and values:
