RECRUITMENT Programming

DU's various recruitment programs teach chapters best practices for recruitment.

Amplify DU: Recruitment Training Program

Delta Upsilon is launching a new, summer recruitment program called Amplify DU. This virtual program is geared toward chapter Vice Presidents of Recruitment. Amplify DU will consist 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 will facilitate webinars and small-group discussion. Small groups will 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 will have the opportunity to attend the webinar portions of this program.

As part of the training program, all participating chapters will be eligible for incentives based on recruitment performance this upcoming year.
