Benefits of Membership

Delta Upsilon International Fraternity remains steadfast in striving to be the premier men's non-secret fraternity for undergraduate men. When we enter into partnerships with academic institutions we highlight DU's strong commitment to developing our student leaders holistically into renaissance men.
Our student leaders will develop and grow personally as well as professionally, and add value back to their Greek and university communities through the combined efforts of university advisors, volunteers, alumni and IHQ staff. It is with this collaborative attitude that we present Delta Upsilon's partnership proposal. You will find included supplementary information that we see as advantageous to consider in distinguishing DU from any other fraternal organizations.
