DU's various recruitment programs teach chapters best practices for recruitment.
Amplify DU: Recruitment Training Program
In summer 2021, Delta Upsilon launched a new, summer recruitment program called Amplify DU. This virtual program is geared toward chapter Vice Presidents of Recruitment. Amplify DU consists of five recruitment webinars for all attendees, as well as three small-group coaching calls and three guided GroupMe chats. Alumni Recruitment Coaches and DU staff facilitate the webinars and small-group discussion, and small groups consist of 6-10 chapters based on similar characteristics (campus type, recruitment timeframe, housed/unhoused chapters, etc.) and provide more focused recruitment coaching. One to two additional recruitment chairs/assistant VPs also have the opportunity to attend the webinar portions of this program.
As part of the training program, all participating chapters are eligible for incentives based on recruitment performance during the 2021-2022 academic year.
