Leadership Institute


As the annual Fraternity convention, the Leadership Institute serves as the highlight of the educational calendar. Each undergraduate chapter is asked to send a minimum of two members. Undergraduate and alumni members participate in the program which includes legislative meetings, province meetings, a Fraternity update and educational opportunities. The Leadership Institute provides an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of a brotherhood, which stands on a foundation of justice, while targeting educational content to meet the contemporary challenges of students and alumni. Educational breakout sessions are organized around several themes, including the history of Delta Upsilon, health and wellness, chapter operations, personal growth and career development.
