History

During the early spring semester of 1986, Baltazar Mendoza-Madrigal, a member of Phi Beta Sigma wanted to further expand the possibility of a Latino based organization with multicultural membership that would grow just as notable. Mendoza along with 17 other men began to explore the idea of establishing a Latino-based fraternity at the University of Iowa, one of the midwest's premier educational institutions. At that time, the student body at the University of Iowa was predominantly Caucasian. In addition, the Latino community on campus was divided into different social groups. As a result, the students who attended the first meeting wanted to solidify and unify the Latino and the multicultural communities at the university.

Mendoza-Madrigal called a special meeting on Monday, March 7, 1986 with some of the Latino students at the University of Iowa's Latino Native American Cultural Center to discuss the need and feasibility of creating a new social fraternity with an emphasis on the Latino culture. After the first meeting, the enthusiasm in favor of the fraternity was so encouraging that the word spread throughout the University of Iowa.
