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 and other recruitment volunteers. 

Amplify DU 2022 consisted of three recruitment webinars for all attendees, as well as two small-group coaching meetings, and at least one one-on-one coaching session. Alumni Recruitment Coaches and DU staff facilitated the webinars and small-group discussion, and small groups consisted of chapters based on similar characteristics (campus type, recruitment timeframe, housed/unhoused chapters, etc.) and provided more focused recruitment coaching. An in-person session was also held during the 2022 Leadership Institute

As part of the training program, all participating chapters are  eligible for incentives based on recruitment performance during the 2022-2023 academic year.  

Recruitment Symposium

The Recruitment Symposium is an officer training program for DU’s chapter Vice Presidents of Membership Recruitment. that is held in conjunction with the Regional Leadership Academy. Participants learn recruitment models, best practices and soft skills to help them lead a successful values-based recruitment and selection process within their chapters during this recruitment-centered track. Each chapter/associate chapter is expected to have at least one member (ideally the VP Recruitment) attend the Recruitment Symposium.

Recruitment Symposium 2024

The 2024 Recruitment Symposium will be held in conjunction with each Regional Leadership Academy in February. Those dates will be announced this summer. 

Each chapter/associate chapter receives one complimentary registration for this officer to participate in the Recruitment Symposium at RLA. Chapters traveling over 400 miles one way to RLA will be eligible to receive a $100 travel stipend for their Recruitment Symposium participant. To qualify for the complimentary registration and the travel reimbursement, the participant must attend all sessions of RLA and the Recruitment Symposium and comply with all policies and expectations. The stipend will be provided in the form of a credit to the chapter's account with IHQ. Note: the distance will be calculated based on the closest RLA to the chapter.
