Delta Upsilon has partnered with Outside the Classroom to offer GreekLifeEdu - a non-opinionated, science-based course that aims not to preach but rather to teach the facts about alcohol, hazing and sexual assault. GreekLifeEdu empowers members to make well-informed decisions and provides simple strategies to help keep them and their friends safe.
Each spring Delta Upsilon facilitates five Regional Leadership Seminars (RLS). These are opportunities for members to develop within their leadership skills and exchange ideas by interacting with members from a wide range of chapters and diverse backgrounds.
ResponseAbility is a program which addresses bystander behavior. This training focuses on discussing several behaviors relatable to a college campus environment such as hazing, drug/alcohol abuse, racism, homophobia, eating disorders, sexual assaults, and other inappropriate and unhealthy behaviors.
The Delta Upsilon Emerging Leaders Experience (DUEL) is uniquely designed to help young leaders prepare to meet the challenges and responsibilities in life and in their chapter. This program also includes a hands-on experience of retracing the footsteps of Delta Upsilon Founders during a visit to our founding site at Williams College in Williamstown, Mass.
Organizational/Chapter Development Programs
The Advisors' Academy is designed to help participants: learn and apply best practices in chapter advising; learn best practices in formulating working relationships with members; discover new resources and opportunities available to the chapters and colonies they advise; discover student development theory; and learn new updates and trends in the fraternity system.
The Presidents' Academy is an officer training program for Delta Upsilon's newly-elected chapter/colony presidents. This program offers operational and soft-skills training to help prepare presidents to effectively run a Delta Upsilon chapter.
Delta Upsilon is unique in having an annual Leadership Institute. This event is a culmination of the Fraternity's bi-cameral legislative process, undergraduate and volunteer educational programming, and a celebration of many awards and recognition of our members and chapters.
Delta Upsilon engages in ongoing assessment of educational programs and student learning in order to continuously improve programs and curricula. The educational programs continuously gather data from multiple sources, including post program evaluations, Fraternity and Sorority Experience Survey, and University Learning Objectives Assessment.
Delta Upsilon Program Scorecards
Assessment is an important component of the programmatic experience as we are committed to ensuring that our members are gaining quality educational experiences. Each of our programs has a scorecard that compiles data from previous years. The scorecard is comprised of findings regarding satisfaction, learning, impact and expectations.
|Fraternity And Sorority Experience Survey |
The Fraternity and Sorority Experience Survey measures factors influencing chapter and Greek community support of intellectual and leadership development, values integration, and positive relationships.
|University Learning Objectives Assessment |
The University Learning Objectives Assessment (UniLOA) is a "dashboard indicator" of student growth, learning, and development and is a powerful tool to assist Delta Upsilon in supporting program development on an individual chapter level and internationally.
Delta Upsilon partners with many industry initiatives to enhance or offer educational programs to our members.
|Undergraduate Interfraternity Institute |
UIFI hosted by the North-American Interfraternity Conference is a five day institute that brings together fraternity men and sorority women from across North America to create opportunities to explore, define, and enhance their leadership skills, personal awareness, commitment to their fraternity or sorority, and grow to expect values based action from themselves and those they lead.
|Liberal Education and America's Promise (LEAP)|
The LEAP program is an initiative that champions the value of a liberal education- for individual students and for a national dependent on economic creativity and democratic vitality. The initiative focuses campus practice on fostering essential learning outcomes for all students, whatever their chosen field of study.
LEAP is Association of American College & Universities' (AAC&U) primary vehicle for advancing the communicating about the importance of undergraduate liberal education for all students. LEAP seeks to engage the public with core questions about what really matters in college, to give students a compass to guide their learning, and to make a set of essential learning outcomes the preferred framework for educational excellence.
The University Learning Objectives initiative steams from LEAP and higher educations' commitment to seek premier programs and organizations that truly matter in the college and university environment today. This type of learning will empower today's college students to succeed and make a difference in the 21st century.
