Established in 1834, Delta Upsilon is an international men's college fraternity with chapters in the United States and Canada. The fraternity, founded at Williams College in Williamstown, Mass., is the oldest, non-secret, Greek-letter society and is committed to 'Building Better Men' for a global society through our four founding principles, friendship, character, culture and justice. The fraternity's international philanthropy, the Delta Upsilon Global Service Initiative (GSI), offers members a unique opportunity to fundraise and engage in direct service in developing nations and regions of the world while uniting their actions with the principles of the fraternity.


Vision: To be the premier men’s fraternity committed to Building Better Men for a global society through service, leadership development, and lifelong personal growth of our diverse membership.



Delta Upsilon's mission is Building Better Men.

We will accomplish this by:

Focusing on our non-secret heritage and Four Founding Principles: 


         The Promotion of Friendship              The Diffusion of Liberal Culture

         The Development of Character          The Advancement of Justice




Men interested in leadership development will have the opportunity to become a part of our executive board and lead Delta Upsilon at Vermont. They will have one on one consultation from DU International Headquarters Staff, alumni, and local advisors throughout their time as an undergraduate member.

Positions include:


Vice President of Finance

Vice President of Recruitment

Professional staff from Delta Upsilon International Headquarters will be at the University of Vermont to assist in the formation of DU’s newest colony. They will train and guide new members through their first semester as Founding Fathers. The focus will be finding the best men on campus to assist in creating the culture a DU chapter should have, guided by our four founding principles.
