DU Returning to Washington State

Delta Upsilon International Fraternity is excited to announce it will return to Washington State University in fall 2021. DU staff will be on campus starting Aug. 17 to begin the process of recruiting the newest members into the Fraternity. 

During their time on campus, DU Leadership Consultants will market Delta Upsilon to the campus community, recruitment members, train chapter advisors, build a foundation for success for the chapter, and assist alumni with updates to the chapter house. Staff will remain on campus throughout the fall term and work closely with the associate chapter moving forward as it works its way toward Reinstallation. 

DU's chapter at Washington State became the Fraternity's 63rd chapter when it was installed on March 4, 1933. It has an 82-year history on campus. The chapter was closed in 2016, and DU's return was determined in conjunction with campus administration. 

"Delta Upsilon is excited to return to Washington State University and restore our chapter to excellence," said DU Executive Director Justin Kirk. "We will work closely with campus officials, chapter alumni and other volunteers to ensure the chapter remains rooted in our Four Founding Principles of Friendship, Character, Culture and Justice."
