Strong leaders build strong chapters. We think it’s important to give our chapter presidents the tools to succeed.

About Presidents Academy

Presidents Academy accelerates the growth and learning of DU’s chapter Presidents each year. Presidents from every chapter come together to participate in an institute-style program with a curriculum that emphasizes the mission and Principles of Delta Upsilon as a foundation for effective chapter leadership.

At Presidents Academy, Chapter Presidents are exposed to new ideas and possibilities and are encouraged to apply what they learn to their leadership role and responsibility. They learn from each other, stretch their boundaries, discover strengths and envision a more successful version of their chapter.
