Leadership Institute

Experience DU on the Fraternity’s biggest stage.

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.
