Delta Upsilon Fraternity


Delta Upsilon was established at Iona College in 1989 based on the four founding principles of the international fraternity; the promotion of friendship, the development of character, the diffusion of liberal culture, and the advancement of justice. These four founding principles reflect the high aspirations of our brotherhood and serve as a continuing challenge and inspiration toward greater excellence. The main goal of the fraternity is to develop a well- rounded gentleman and create a strong sense of brotherhood.
