Iota Nu Delta (, also IND) is the first South Asian interest college fraternity. IND was founded in 1994 at the Binghamton University. It is a member of the North-American Interfraternity Conference since 2007 and National APIDA Panhellenic Association since 2016.
On February 7, 1994, eight male students at Binghamton University founded the first South-Asian Interest Greek Organization. Their stated goal in forming the organization was to bridge the gaps between people of different backgrounds, ethnicity, and cultures while promoting South Asian cultural awareness. Iota Nu Delta Fraternity, Inc. is South Asian based, but is not exclusive to men of South-Asian origin.
The first eight members, known as the national Founding Fathers, of Iota Nu Delta Fraternity, Inc. are:
