Building Better Men takes the dedication of hundreds of volunteers. Help us achieve our mission by becoming a volunteer.
DU alumni and friends give countless hours each year to help us in Building Better Men.
From advising a chapter to organizing an event or facilitating a program, being a DU volunteer allows individuals to give back to an organization they believe in while gaining valuable personal and professional skills and experience. If you have questions about how you can get involved, you can contact Senior Director of Chapter Development Michelle Marchand at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Chapter Advisory Board Members
Each chapter and colony needs a team of advisors in place to assist, support and mentor the undergraduate officers and general members on an ongoing basis. Most of these advisors are alumni members of the Fraternity, but a substantial number are non-members who may work at the college/university where the colony/chapter is located. Find out if you are near a colony or chapter.
For more information on the role of the chapter visit our Advisor Resources page.
As an important part of the Fraternity's leadership team, Province Governors volunteer considerable amounts of time to undergraduate and alumni chapters and colonies within geographic portions (Provinces) of North America. Appointed by the Board of Directors, a Province Governor's responsibilities include: representing the Fraternity to all its stakeholders, striving to build better men by focusing on the Fraternity's non-secret heritage and Four Founding Principles, establishing and achieving province goals each semester, and communicating regularly with undergraduate and alumni leaders of the chapters and colonies in the province.
DU's many great educational programs, which are designed to develop individual skills and promote organizational growth, would not be possible without the dedication of our many alumni, interfraternal friends and campus-based partners who volunteer as program facilitators.
Reorganization Redevelopment Team
Delta Upsilon's reorganization process allows us to restore a chapter while avoiding a chapter closure, and it happens in three parts: preparation, the membership review and redevelopment. While Fraternity staff is responsible for much of the preparation, we look to include alumni to be apart of the redevelopment and reorganization team. For more information on becoming a part of the reorganization interview team, redevelopment team or team lead, contact Dr. Sara Jahansouz Wray, Director of Loss Prevention, at email@example.com.
Alumni Club Officers
Alumni clubs are area-based associations comprised of DUs from various chapters who currently live in the same geographic area. Alumni clubs primarily exist to provide social and networking opportunities for members, but also work to enhance the standing of the Fraternity in that particular area. Activities often include: monthly "happy hour" events, annual golf tournaments, Founders Day dinners, ballgames and cultural events.
