Aug. 4-7, 2022
Hilton Disney Springs 
Orlando, Florida  

Delta Upsilon is excited to host the 2022 Leadership Institute at the Hilton Disney Springs in Orlando/Lake Buena Vista, Florida! This property was supposed to host the 2020 LI, which was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are excited to have the opportunity to once again celebrate DU brotherhood in the happiest place on earth!

The Hilton Disney Springs is a Disney property located within walking distance of the Disney Springs entertainment district. 

Registration for LI 2022 will open in the spring. At that time, we will provide more information about guest attendance and the availability to extend your stay and purchase tickets to Walt Disney World Parks.

About LI

Leadership Institute is Delta Upsilon’s annual Fraternity convention and the highlight of our educational calendar. LI not only the largest gathering of our brothers, it is where official business of the Fraternity is conducted. At LI, undergraduate and alumni members both participate a program that includes legislative meetings, province meetings, a Fraternity update and educational sessions.

Each undergraduate chapter is asked to send a minimum of two members, though eight attendees is encouraged.

Celebrating accomplishments

The Leadership Institute provides an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our brotherhood, 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.


LI’s Impact

Our data shows that the Leadership Institute positively impacts a brother's development in a number of ways. Through our annual Membership Outcomes Assessment, data shows that compared to the average DU, those who have attended the Leadership Institute have greater senses of: 

"“My Leadership Institute experience was great. You meet people from all different corners of the country and Canada. We all come together for one purpose, and you have the opportunity to attend educational sessions based on areas you want to learn about and grow in through the Fraternity.”

- Christian Lange, Christopher Newport '21
