CARPE DIEM Our fraternity has a very challenging motto: “Building Better Men.” At the Leadership Institute, I presented the theme, “CARPE DIEM,” translated in English to mean “SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY”. I wonder how many of you have given deep thought to your future. Carpe Diem has been a strong motivation for some who have passed through this fraternity. It is said that success in life comes when preparation meets opportunity. My question to you is how do you see your future and how do you see your fraternity? How are you preparing yourself to seize the opportunity and be a success? All of your alumni Brothers encourage you to create a vision, which will compel you to prepare to seize the opportunity Delta Upsilon is oﬀering you. We want you to learn to believe in yourself and your vision, and to come to see yourselves as solutions and not burdens to society. Dream and create a vision for yourself today. Have a reason for your existence, a vision for your being initiated into this Fraternity. Vision ignites the law of possession and through vision we behold God’s plan for our life. Have a mental picture of what you want to be tomorrow. If you can see it, you can have it. Vision makes a star and stars shine. Vision generates inner motivation. With vision you never get tired until you have achieved what you intend. With vision you are self-motivated and self-moving, unlike wheelbarrows that will always have to be pushed along. And vision encourages you to make good use of your time eﬀectively. Remember time is the only asset everybody has. We all have 24 hours a day and if you do not know the value of your time, others will take advantage of you. Your new brothers should move you forward. They should challenge the potential in you to come out, otherwise do not let them waste your time. Time is an essential ingredient of life and the proper use of it determines your placement in life. There is no savings bank for time and lost time cannot be regained nor replenished. Lose control over your time now and you lose control over the events of your life. Your altitude can only be determined by your attitude. Never accept mediocrity. Do not choose to be in the valley. It is always crowded. Struggle to get to the top for there is enough room there for you. Press on, push yourself. For people who know where they are going are never depressed by where they are presently. Delta Upsilon has produced men who have learned to seize the opportunity by making judicious use of their time and holding themselves in preparation. Today, many of your alumni brothers have become icons of success both in Canada, the U.S. and abroad. These men, who were just like you yesterday, extend their support with the cherished wish above all things that you have a great and proﬁtable experience and that you excel in ways you could never imagine.

Dynamic Recruitment system Dynamic: continuous change, activity or progress Recruitment: enrollment or enlisting, suggesting year-round capability System: method or set of procedures arranged in a repeatable pattern A dynamic recruitment system is a year-round, valuesbased strategy that will increase the quality of nearly any chapter. The centerpiece of this advanced approach is the use of a matrix or spreadsheet for managing the names of prospective new members, called a names list.
Two results-producing activities simplify this entire model: 1) Get as many names as possible ON the names list; 2) Get those names OFF the names list as quickly as possible. The chapter’s ability to grow and manage a large number of prospects is the key to having both the quantity and quality of brothers desired by the members. Dynamic recruitment is not about recruiting 50 new members (although that’s often possible). The goal is to maximize the number of men who are exposed to Delta Upsilon. The chapter is then responsible for deciding the right number of those men to
accept for membership. Remember, quantity drives quality. As fraternity members, we often talk about how “Recruitment is the lifeblood of the organization,” and “We have to recruit 24/7,” but when it comes down to doing the work of recruitment, we often fall short. Doing year-round recruitment is a hard task and sounds exhausting for those of us who have planned recruitment events before. So, here are a few tips to make year-round recruitment a much more manageable task.
Tip #1 Cure Your Disease. Many fraternity chapters have a nasty disease that can be hard to cure, and that often prevents them from doing eﬀective year-round recruitment. The name of that disease: Event-itis. Event-itis is a disease that has spread to almost every chapter. It makes all the members believe that they have to spend a lot of money and time on planning a big
9/29/08 9:23:27 AM
Getting Names on the List Referrals Ask for referrals of top undergraduates from sorority leaders, faculty members, administrators, alumni brothers and other organization leaders. Also, consider using social networking sites to link with friends of friends. Summer Recruitment Each campus is a bit diﬀerent, but all have some potential for summer recruitment. Consider leveraging incoming freshman lists from the admissions department. Tap into freshman prospects through guidance counselors at targeted schools. Member Positioning
event in order to make friends. The thought of having to put on big events every week to keep recruitment going year-round is daunting. There is good news though – the cure for Event-itis is doing small activities. Normal people (non-Greeks) make friends by doing simple, small activities together (e.g. lunch, coﬀee, work out, hang out, etc.). Recruit people by doing normal people activities, and don’t put so much pressure on yourself to have big events all the time.

Tip #2 People Don’t Join Organizations. It’s true. People don’t join organizations. People join people. Be honest, did you join a set of ideals, a calendar of activities, and a bunch of great t-shirts? Or did you join a group of men based on your relationships with one or two of the brothers? Most DUs can pinpoint the one person who recruited them into the Fraternity. If we know this, we can focus our time on building one-on-one relationships and not “selling the Fraternity.” Men are going to join Delta Upsilon because of their personal relationship with you, so don’t spend your time, energy and money on cool t-shirts, barbecues, parties or events. Go out and make as many acquaintances and friends as possible, and watch them turn into brothers.
Every member of the chapter should be involved in multiple campus organizations and leadership roles. Encourage members to get involved in residence life, admissions work, orientation programs, campus tours, and so forth. Use rosters and contact sheets from these activities to build your names list.
Membership Drives The formal recruitment week is not the only time to have a membership drive. Consider making a postrecruitment push, mid-semester drive, or end of the semester clean up. Marketing for Names Market your chapter in ways that will put names on your names list. Consider promoting academic scholarships, hosting a banquet, sports league involvement, or soliciting for involvement in a community service project. Recruitment Traditional campus-based recruitment or “rush” is the most commonly used method for gathering names. Participate in the programming and maximize its potential, but realize you may only be reaching a small percentage of the campus population.
9/29/08 9:23:38 AM
Getting Names off the List The names list will continue to grow, but nothing happens until those names come OFF the list. This means creating an expectation that chapter members reach out to those on the list quickly and regularly with invitations to spend time together.
Invitations A prospect added to your names list should receive an invitation within no more than 72 hours to join brothers of the chapter in a small activity. Every name on the list should be contacted/invited at least every two weeks. If possible, allow the brother who put the name on the list to do the inviting. If not, have a member of the recruitment coordinator’s team make the invitation.
Big events are fun, but they aren’t great for getting to know someone new. Inviting a prospect to join you and a few of your friends at a small activity is more likely to produce a comfortable environment and a meaningful friendship. Tip #3
Small Group Activity Ideas
You Can’t Recruit Who You Don’t Know.
Invite them to join you for:
It is a simple concept. You really can’t recruit who you don’t know. So, if you want to build a successful year-round recruitment process, the ﬁrst step is NOT to hold big events, make t-shirts or plan for house rotations. The ﬁrst step is to get to know (just meet) as many people as you possibly can. With that in mind, build your year-round recruitment plan so your members are constantly collecting names and putting them on a names list.
Pick up sports games
Just “hanging out”
For many chapters, the quality of their members is as important as the quantity of members they have. Tip #3 suggests that Quantity drives Quality. In other words, the more names you have on your names list, the more people you’ll have to choose from, and the more likely you are to get high quality members. Reference: Mattson, M. & Orendi J.

2008 Leadership Institute Southern hospitality, DU Brotherhood, Texas BBQ, the 174th Convention, Houston Astros baseball and much more. The blue and gold was rolled out in grand fashion “Deep in the Heart of Texas,” as more than 360 Delta Upsilon brothers, faculty and guests converged upon the nation’s fourth largest city July 31 – August 3 for the 2008 Leadership Institute in Houston. Brother Mark Hernandez, Houston ‘92, president of the Houston Alumni of Delta Upsilon, kicked oﬀ the weekend by welcoming the Delta Upsilon attendees, from all over the United States and Canada to Texas on behalf of the Houston Chapter, Province 11, and the entire Houston DU alumni base, who proved to be wonderful hosts throughout the weekend. Master of Ceremonies, Nate Kuester, Washington State ‘05, then invited the current longest-standing A.S.C. conventioneer, Brother Dave Maguire, Southern Illinois ‘73, to install the newest members of the A.S.C. The A.S.C. was unveiled in 2007 to promote continued attendance of Delta Upsilon’s annual Leadership Institute. Those who are eligible must have attended a minimum of seven Leadership Institutes. Brother Maguire has been part of 34 consecutive
Conventions, though Col. Frederick Crosset, New York 1884, who attended 51 DU conventions in a row, holds the all-time record. Executive Director, Justin Kirk, recognized the chapters that scored 100 percent on individual categories in their Chapter Excellence Plan. Kirk also introduced the current DU staﬀ and invited all former DU staﬀ to join them on the stage. Former staﬀ members, Lewis Gregory, Kansas ‘75, and Jordan Lotsoﬀ, Northern Illinois ‘88, spoke about their experiences having worked for Delta Upsilon. Delta Upsilon Board Chairman, William Messick, Lafayette ‘68 then presented Brother Gregory with the Delta Upsilon Distinguished Alumni Award. The highest honor in Delta Upsilon, the award recognizes brothers who have shown their dedication by giving of their “time, talent and treasure” to the fraternity. Thursday evening was also Model Initiation time, with Brother Maguire acting in his usual role as Master. Maguire was assisted by Brothers Jeﬀ Fuhrman, Northern Iowa ‘94, Clint Dworshak, North Dakota State ‘00, and Matthew Nance, DePauw ‘10, who acted as Examiner, Chief Marshal and Chaplain, respectively. An annual highlight occurred

when more than 350 DU brothers rose to thunderous applause when the title of “Brother” was bestowed upon the newest DU initiates, Brothers Scott McCain, Houston ‘10, and Sam Canchola, San Jose ‘11. Fraternity President, Bernard Franklin, Kansas State ‘75, delivered an inspiring charge, addressing developments in today’s world and their implications for college men. He concluded by introducing a direction for the Leadership Institute. “Our fraternity has a very challenging motto,” Franklin said, “Building Better Men.” My theme for this Leadership Institute is “Carpe Diem,” translated in English to mean “Seize the opportunity.” Following the banquet, undergraduate representatives met in a formal business session to conduct the annual business of DU’s undergraduate chapters at the 174th Anniversary Convention. No formal legislation was presented this year, which made for an easy business session, led by the newly elected Chairman of the 2008 Undergraduate Convention, Brother Douglas Massengill, North Carolina State ‘10. Friday’s educational sessions were highlighted by Dynamic Recruitment 201 presented by Josh Orendi of Phired Up. The eﬀective presentation energized a number of our chapter delegates in attendance to “hit the ground running” in recruitment this fall.
During the General Awards Luncheon, President Franklin unveiled the DU Awards of Merit with the very ﬁrst presentation of these awards. Built around eight diﬀerent professional categories, including business, education, entertainment, human service, literature, justice and law, public service and science, the Awards of Merit are a prestigious honor given to notable and high proﬁle individuals who bring honor to Delta Upsilon through their actions or professions. The very ﬁrst Award of Merit in Education was presented to DU’s special interfraternal sister, Mindy Sopher. She has helped nurture scores of DU brothers, especially those who she advises at North Carolina State. Her heartfelt acceptance made the afternoon a time to remember. Chairman Messick then presented Outstanding Alumni Chapter awards. Runners up included the Purdue Chapter Alumni, Missouri Chapter Alumni and Cornell Chapter Alumni, with the top honor going to San Jose Chapter Alumni as 2007-08 Alumni Chapter of the Year. That afternoon 150 undergraduates volunteered with Boys & Girls Clubs in the Houston area while the rest of the undergraduates participated in additional Dynamic Recruitment programming.

On Friday evening, all attendees joined more than 50 local alumni for a private reception and reserved seating at Minute Maid Park where the Houston Astros took on the New York Mets. The exciting game, and post game ﬁreworks were certainly overshadowed by the outpouring of DU Brotherhood and camaraderie. The election of Fraternity Board members was conducted at the 99th Alumni Assembly. Brother Bernard Franklin, Kansas State ‘75, was re-elected as president and Bradford S. Grabow, DePauw ‘85, was elected as treasurer of the fraternity. Directors Malcolm Branch, Wisconsin ‘69, Timothy C. Dowd, Oklahoma ‘75, and Joseph R. Heerens, DePauw ‘84, were re-elected and Matthew C. Nance, DePauw ‘10, and Adam M. Sessa, San Jose ‘10, were elected as undergraduate directors. The Leadership Institute morning sessions were focused on the personal development of Delta Upsilon’s leaders. Undergraduate members were immersed in a curriculum developed around the message of Fraternity President, Bernard Franklin, Kansas State ‘75, from his Dare to Lead article from the last issue of the The Quarterly. During the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation Luncheon, chapters that made signiﬁcant contributions to the Foundation were recognized as members of the Oak
Circle and Dave McKeag, Minnesota ’04, presented the 2008 McKeag Oak Circle Donor Award to the North Dakota Chapter. Foundation Trustee and Chairman of the Planned Giving Committee, Lewis Gregory, Kansas ‘75, introduced a new initiative of “Better Leaders, Better Legacies.” Director of Development, Craig Sowell, Houston ‘92, announced the completion of Phase One the Founder’s Memorial Courtyard and presented the Oak Circle Scholarships. Details of the Oak Circle Scholarships, as well as the McQuaid Scholarships can be viewed online at www.duef. org and will be recapped in the Foundation’s annual report in the next issue of The Quarterly. The Leadership Institute afternoon sessions focused on undergraduate members gaining operational knowledge about the Fraternity and allowed them to develop an action plan for the coming academic year. The Grand Awards Banquet kicked oﬀ with an announcement of the Sweepstakes Award ﬁnalists for 2007-08: Bradley, Cornell, Kansas State, Missouri, North Carolina State, Rochester and Wisconsin. On behalf of President Franklin, Former DU Fraternity President, Bruce Bailey, Denison ‘58, presented the President’s Award for DU Undergraduate of the Year to John Simpson, Bradley ‘08.

Chairman Messick then took the stage to present the Chairman’s Award for Alumni Volunteer of the Year to David Herzer, Wisconsin ‘54. The Fraternity’s outgoing treasurer, Brother Herzer served ably for the past four years as treasurer, but helped the Fraternity make enormous strides in the past year in the area of ﬁnance administration. Chairman Messick also presented the ﬁrst DU Award of Merit to be presented to a Delta Upsilon brother. Judge Mauricio Rondon, Houston ‘92, who presides over the 234th District Court of Texas, was honored with the Charles Evans Hughes Award of Merit in Justice. Brother Rondon gave an inspiring acceptance, attributing many of his life’s lessons to DU, and extolling the deﬁning impact that DU has had on his life and career. Chairman Messick then completely surprised two DU alumni by bestowing them with the high honor of the DU Founders Medal, which is the highest recognition for service to an individual chapter. The two brothers honored on this special evening were Jerry Bobo, Houston ‘77, and Bruce McKinney, Missouri ’74, who were honored for their long-standing and inspirational service to the Houston and Missouri Chapters, respectively.
The plans for next year’s 175th Anniversary were then unveiled by Brother Sowell, acting in his capacity as Fraternity Historian. The presentation was highlighted by a fantastic video produced by Brother Michael Guiliano, Central Florida ‘11. The evening celebration was capped oﬀ with the presentation of the 2007 – 2008 DU Sweepstakes Trophy to the Bradley Chapter, as Delta Upsilon’s “Chapter of the Year.” Delta Upsilon’s next Leadership Institute takes place in the Fraternity’s 175th year. This special anniversary celebration will be conducted as part of the 2009 Leadership Institute and is scheduled for July 23 to July 26, 2009 in Albany, New York. The celebration events at next year’s Institute will be a unique opportunity to celebrate the Fraternity and should not be missed. The highlight of the weekend will undoubtedly be an organized visit to the site of DU’s Founding at Williams College. Those interested in attending next year’s festivities should stay tuned for information to be released this fall.

The Arizona State Chapter of Delta Upsilon hosted their ﬁrst ever Teeter-a-Thon to beneﬁt the Boys and Girls Club of Arizona.
As a high school senior, Colin Malcolm, Cal Poly ‘11, who is majoring in biology, made local news in a story about how he successfully balances his volunteer work and school involvement while working his way to win the NCS Championship title in wrestling in the 140 lbs weight class.
Carthage Chapter In January, ten undergraduate members took a six day road trip highlighting the historical background of Delta Upsilon. In addition to visiting DU’s birthplace in Williamstown, Mass. and the Delta Upsilon International Headquarters in Indianapolis the brothers visited the following DU chapters; Northwestern, Western Reserve, Hamilton, Penn State and Indiana.
Ground-breaking for the new Arlington Chapter house.
After selling the former off-campus house in 2006, the Arlington Chapter broke ground for a new house on Greek Row on April 26. The 4,600 square foot facility will house 12 members and will be the focal point for the chapter’s activities. The local chapter joined forces with their alumni and their housing corporation to make this happen. Bradley Chapter After taking a new approach to a fundraiser by getting more of the campus involved, the Bradley Chapter reached their goal of raising $35,000 for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The news came in March after the end of their letter writing campaign in November. By raising this amount of money, Delta Upsilon’s event became the largest fundraiser on campus, yet the chapter was not ﬁnished. They held two additional events in the spring semester.
In May brothers of the Carthage Chapter participated in a Suess-a-thon at the campus library. Brothers read “Yertle the Turtle” to eager children. During the event, campus food service provided green eggs and ham for the visitors. The money raised at the event was donated to the Book for Every Child Foundation. Central Florida Chapter The Central Florida Chapter joined the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce and began attending business meetings. Brothers gained the opportunity to network with local businesses and the relationship gives brothers the ability to network beyond the University of Central Florida community. Through the Orlando Regional Chamber of Commerce, the chapter is looking to obtain internships,

Brother Tyburski commented on the commitment of the Foundation in the support of the chapter. He mentioned his alumni friends and colleagues, Chase Carey, Colgate ‘76, Foundation President and his pledge father, Tom Dempsey, Colgate ‘72, as examples of this dynamic bond of support.
Brother Tyburski introduced Lee Woltman as one of his strongest mentors while he was an undergraduate brother at DU and a continuing force of local leadership and guidance within the Alumni Corporation and now with the Foundation. Woltman outlined the three categories of scholarships, academic, leadership and the Tom Dempsey Character Award. He then invited Mike Tone, a scholarship recipient from last year who is now employed as a Colgate development oﬃcer, to assist in the award presentation process. Tone and Woltman presented a total of 26 scholarship awards to chapter members that totaled $23,000. Ben Kuhns presented the Tom Dempsey Character Award and the Frank Speno House Award.

Cornell Chapter This year when campus emptied for spring break, DU was proud to send ﬁve undergraduates to New Orleans to help rebuild in the wake of hurricane Katrina. With a generous donation from Tony Cashen, Cornell ‘57, brothers Josh Barvin, Cornell ‘09, Ben Wagner, Cornell ‘10, Joe Stevens, Cornell ‘10, Matt Schmohl, Cornell ‘10, and Matt Schapiro, Cornell ‘10 were able to spend ﬁve days working with Habitat for Humanity’s Gulf Coast initiative. Upon arriving in Louisiana, they were immediately struck by the devastation communities are still struggling with, three years after the catastrophe. Vacant lots cover what were once thriving neighborhoods and debris still lines the highways. They also found a positive, can-do attitude among residents who are rebuilding their homes. In the course of volunteering they helped restore a ﬂooded

Pace Chapter Delta Upsilon was named Fraternity of the Year at the Pace Greek Awards Banquet. The chapter was also the top fundraising team, raising more than $6,700 dollars for Relay For Life, which is sponsored by the American Cancer Society. Rochester Chapter The Chapter continued a focus on programming and the semester opened with a presentation by a local house DJ. Co-sponsored with UR Hip-Hop, the program helped educate the campus community on the local house music scene and the state of the music business. The DJ followed his lecture and musical demonstration with a Q&A. Sixty students attended. The Chapter teamed up with the university’s Debate Union for the second straight year to co-sponsor their annual Public Debate. The event featured students from The Debate Union, College Democrats, College, Republicans, Grass roots, SALSA, and Students for Barack Obama. The students debated issues that included energy, immigration, and foreign policy. The Chapter also partnered with No Jackets Required, a student group whose aim is to promote the performance, discussion, and appreciation of contemporary popular music at the University of Rochester, to present “The 90s Show.” Featuring vocalists from the Midnight Ramblers, Vocal Point, and OBOC, the students performed a total of 35 hits from the 90s. The concert consisted of two rock groups: one with only core rock instruments and the other with core instrumentation and a string and horn section. Three DU brothers and two associate members participated in the event that sold more than 200 tickets. Perhaps the most successful program this semester was bringing famous scientist Bill Nye the Science Guy to the university. Nye spoke on global warming issues, shared personal stories and humorously entertained the audience. Co-sponsored with the Student Activities Board, the event sold out the 1400-seat Strong Auditorium and overﬂowed to Lower Strong Auditorium, where a simulcast was displayed. Another chapter program honored Black History Month and the life of Malcolm X. Civil rights expert postdoctoral fellow Julia Rabig spoke in the chapter living room to share her insight on the life of Malcolm X and his inﬂuence on
the black freedom struggle. A screening of Spike Lee’s 1992 biographical ﬁlm “Malcolm X,” followed Rabig’s brief lecture. Forty brothers and guests attended the program which was covered in the Campus Times as a program that ”enlightened the undergraduate population about times in history that are misunderstood and underappreciated.” Brothers joined 10 student groups for Art Awake, a community cultural event that combined artistic displays and live local music. Washington State Chapter Matt Mullennix, Washington State ‘07, was granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA. The defensive end from Spangle, Washington missed the entire 2006 season after suﬀering a knee injury prior to the school’s football opener. He also suﬀered a season-ending injury early in the 2004 season. Following a medical appeal process to receive an additional year, the NCAA approved the request, clearing the way for Mullennix’s return. “I am very excited to get another opportunity to return to the ﬁeld for WSU,” said Mullennix, who earned bachelors degrees in both management and operations and psychology, and will pursue another degree this fall. “I have been very impressed with the new coaching staﬀ and look forward to spending another year in a Cougar uniform.”

While in his last semester at Cornell, Lance Polivy, Cornell ‘08, started Wiggio.com—a web site that helps students work together in groups. Built by a team of Cornell students and faculty members, Wiggio was designed to alleviate the daily frustrations of not having the tools they need to collaborate on diﬀerent projects.
Clare Drake, British Columbia ‘50 is the most notable hockey coach in Canada. He has coached the University of Alberta Golden Bears for many years, and he also coached the Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets. Brother Drake’s biography, “Clare Drake: The Coaches’ Coach,” is a great read for hockey fans, and especially for coaches. “Coach” Drake accomplished something that seems impossible to match. He coached the University of Alberta football team to the Canadian National Championship, then coached the hockey team to the Canadian National Championship in the same year. He was noted in Sports Illustrated for this feat in December 1985.
The Cornell Chapter has been using the site to coordinate philanthropy projects, the Chapter Excellence Plan, and chapter events. Many Greek chapters at Cornell quickly picked up Wiggio as a beneﬁcial organizational tool and the Wiggio team won a Cornell business idea competition in April. Polivy is working on the web site full-time this fall and he encourages chapters and alumni to try Wiggio to organize their groups online. Visit www.wiggio.com.

He also served as the Minnesota Vikings’ oﬀensive line coach for three seasons (2002-04) and was oﬀensive coordinator for one year (2005). During Loney’s tenure as line coach in Minnesota, the Vikings led the league in rushing oﬀense in 2002 and in total oﬀense in 2003 and set a franchise record for total yards in 2004. He is highly regarded for his emphasis on technique work and for his design of the running game.
To make the U.S. Olympic team, Christian needed to place in the top three at the trials. His spectacular diving ﬁnish in 1:45.47 gave him the edge over more highly favored runners.

A memorable visit by Bernard Franklin to Cornell University Delta Upsilon International president, Bernard Franklin, Kansas State ‘75, was the keynote speaker at Cornell University for its A.D. White Leadership Conference on February 16, 2008. The annual conference, named after Cornell’s ﬁrst president, is a day-long program for the leaders of Cornell’s 70 fraternities and sororities. More than 400 participants attended the 18 training seminars facilitated by experts in the Cornell community. During his keynote address, Brother Franklin said, “I am here because I believe in fraternities, I believe in sororities. I am here because I have a great passion around this subject of building leadership through the Greek system. We have a journey to go. I want to inspire you to make sure your Greek system is relevant for the generation of students who follow you. The landscape of America appears to be on the verge of change; the world is changing; so when we look at fraternities and sororities it is important that we talk about change. Why is it important? Those who lead our country and our corporations come from two basic student involvement activities–student government and Greek communities. The stakes are high, and the challenges are greater for the Greek system than at any other time in memory. Let’s end the game of mediocrity, think big, and lead. Baby steps and incremental changes will be a poor excuse for progress. We need to take fraternities and sororities to a whole diﬀerent level. What happens here at Cornell can spread to other systems.” Franklin also shared his personal story as an example how DU can make an impact. He had a seminal experience at Kansas State University, where he became head of the black student union and then joined DU, an all-white fraternity whose members he respected as men of distinction. With the support of DU brothers, Franklin became president of the student council (as a write-in candidate), which was broadcast by the national media. Franklin stressed that being a brother of Delta Upsilon changed his life, as it can for DU brothers everywhere. Franklin
passionately embraces DU’s values and principles and “to be a better man.” Franklin challenged the students to “dare to lead.” Brother Franklin deﬁned ten areas that fraternities should manage in order to remain relevant and strong for a changing campus culture: embrace change, tackle hazing, address alcohol misuse and abuse, hold people accountable, engage others, assess performance and outcomes, monitor technology’s role, incorporate diversity, serve the community, and challenge members to live their mission and values. He concluded his remarks with the words of Marianne Williamson: “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you NOT to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us, it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” Later in the afternoon, Brother Franklin met with the entire Cornell Chapter and repeated his challenge to pursue excellence, high ideals, virtues, and creativity in all areas of fraternity life. He took a tour of the Cornell campus and enjoyed exchanging ideas, particularly about the importance of alumni support, at dinner meetings with DU leaders. Franklin said he was impressed with the support of Cornell’s administration for the Greek system and encouraged by the dedication of Cornell’s alumni. This was his ﬁrst visit to an east coast DU campus, and he pledged to stay in touch with Cornell as he continues his mission to inspire all North American chapters to achieve their full potential.
“I believe we can move past just social consciousness and having fun to really making a difference.”

Delta Upsilon International Fraternity Treasurer’s Annual Report 2006-2007 We concluded the year on the high note of naming Justin J. Kirk as Delta Upsilon Executive Director, and his firm hand and cool judgment has been seen everywhere we look ever since. Delta Upsilon completed the 2006-07 fiscal year in a strong financial position with net assets of $2.6 million, increased by approximately $200,000 from the prior year. Fraternity Operations – The core purpose of Delta Upsilon is Building Better Men. In support of this purpose our professional staff continues to execute exciting programming that meets the challenge of developing leaders within Delta Upsilon.
Delta Upsilon International operations fund this programming cost by chapter fees and membership dues. In addition the Fraternity received grants from Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation that amounted to $89,403. Some of those grants provide scholarships for additional attendees at our conferences. Our fiscal operations were budgeted for an operating deficit (before Trust Fund transfer) and the remaining $52,000 operating loss was exceeded by $326,331 of investment gains from the investment funds. Revenue growth has come from undergraduate fee increases and support from Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation. Future revenue growth is anticipated from internal chapter expansion and by adding new chapters.
The Fraternity investment funds are divided into the Permanent Trust Fund and the Loss Prevention Fund. Permanent Trust Fund – is a Board designated fund supporting the Fraternity with an annual transfer of investment revenue and principal to support Fraternity activities. $99,394 was transferred this fiscal period and nevertheless the Fund grew $140,000 to $1,552,122 at year end. Loss Prevention Fund – is the other designated fund within our Fraternity and it supports efforts to maintain reasonable insurance rates for our members. Insurance operations, our largest category of cash flow netted $24,971; the LP Fund grew further with $94,326 of investment returns, reaching a yearend balance of $897,477. Loss prevention training and management is a major component of our chapter member education and conference programs. Your support, whether financial through gifts to the Delta Upsilon Educational Foundation, or personal through volunteer service and gifts to a local chapter, is essential to Delta Upsilon’s success. The Fraternity owes a debt of gratitude to our staff for their effective management of the Fraternity, and for the many long hours worked throughout the year to ensure that a DU man is “the best man he can be.” We thank all staff and alumni for the gifts, good work and effort put forth for your Fraternity, Delta Upsilon.
Asset Growth – The increase in net assets was due to improved investment returns resulting from both sage management and an improved marketplace. Gains and losses were realized as a by-product of changing investment management and thankfully there were more gains than losses. We will forever owe a debt of gratitude to retiring brother Maury Mandel, for his many years of thoughtful guidance and management of our valued investment funds.

Leadership Profile Keith Menezes, Georgia Tech ‘08 undergraduate advisory board (2007-2008)
How have you changed since high school and how has Delta Upsilon played a role in that?
What is your field of study and what are your future goals? Industrial and systems engineering. I would like to get into project management/consulting and eventually into business.
How did you first learn about Delta Upsilon and why did the Fraternity appeal to you? I initially rushed at Georgia Tech as a way to meet people. I did not intend to join a fraternity. I ended up spending a considerable amount of time at Delta Upsilon and getting to know the brothers there. Initially I formed a strong connection with a couple of brothers in the Fraternity and I decided in order to ease the stresses of Georgia Tech I would join a fraternity. The more I learned about Delta Upsilon the more I grew to love and understand our history and what we stand for. How has Delta Upsilon enriched your collegiate experience? Delta Upsilon has enriched my collegiate experience in so many ways. Delta Upsilon has made Georgia Tech bearable; it is a great feeling knowing that you have brothers that you can turn to in your time of need. My brothers have truly supported me year after year at Georgia Tech. I have had the opportunity to hold many leadership positions and test myself. I have learned how to handle both success and more importantly, failure. I helped plan the 50th anniversary celebration at Georgia Tech and through my involvement at Delta Upsilon, I have had the privilege of working with DU alumni from all over the country and I have been able to understand how to deal with people that will not always agree with you. This skill is invaluable in the workplace and I have been in a number of interviews where I have drawn on my leadership experience at DU.
I would like to think that I was always a leader, but looking back on it, I would say that Delta Upsilon has made me a stronger, more competent and more conﬁdent leader. Delta Upsilon has challenged me to become a better man by preparing me to deal with conﬂicts and teaching the way to cater to diﬀerent brothers’ needs while still holding our four founding principles in high regard. Who in Delta Upsilon do you look to as a mentor? In Delta Upsilon, I look to Paul and Rick Taylor at NC State as mentors. These men live the founding principles every day of their lives and are proud to be DU brothers. Paul and Rick do not sugar coat anything; if something isn’t right they will tell you. They will challenge your views on DU and on life not to prove their point, but simply to challenge your way of thinking and to see if you can really defend your stance. Every DU should have the opportunity to talk to Paul and Rick. I cannot tell you of the number of times I have called the Taylor brothers for advice and they have helped me out. Who outside of Delta Upsilon do you look to as a mentor? I deﬁnitely look to my parents as mentors and role models. I was born in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates and lived there for 10 years. My parents moved to the United States in 1996 in order to give their children the opportunity for a better educational experience. I am forever indebted to them for that. My parents have worked very hard to instill a sense of hard work and values such as honesty and perseverance. They have picked me up when I have made mistakes and praised me when I succeeded. What do you feel is most important for the future of the Fraternity? I think that our fraternity must focus in three very crucial areas: membership education, alumni involvement and conveying Delta Upsilon’s Four Founding Principles, Friendship, Character, Culture and Justice.

Leadership Profile Douglas R. Massengil, North Carolina State ‘10 undergraduate advisory board Chairman even one day. It isn’t always easy, as with most things one is passionate about, but I am learning valuable life lessons that are helping me be a better man in the continual pursuit of a just society based upon the values that I have come to represent. What are you studying and what are you involved in? I am studying political science education and I am a campaign manager for the North Carolina Superintendent of Public Instruction. What are your future career/education goals? I plan to be a teacher and school administrator. I will pursue a Masters of Arts in Teaching, Masters of School Administration, and Doctorate in Educational Leadership. How did you first learn about Delta Upsilon and why did the Fraternity appeal to you? I used to work at a law ﬁrm with the then Fraternity president who asked me to go to a recruitment information session. After attending the session and seeing the quality of the undergraduate and alumni men, I knew that it was an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up.

How has Delta Upsilon enriched your collegiate experience? My fraternal life helps to ground me upon a set of values that I organize my life around. Upon arriving at NC State, I had no desire to join a fraternity. Then, I met one of my soon-to-be brothers who I looked up to because of the way that he carried himself in his daily life. I felt like he was well balanced and had a more complete sense of identity than I did and I longed to personify the example that he set. Joining Delta Upsilon far surpassed my expectations, the Greek community has provided me with a ﬁrm foundation, friends for a lifetime, and aﬀorded me the opportunity to meet caring and passionate people that represent the values that I want to model my life around. My Greek life experience has aﬀorded me the opportunity to be more comfortable in my university environment and has provided me with a plethora of resources to achieve academically and socially. I have yet to regret my decision to become Greek for
What community service have you been involved with and how has that influenced you? Interacting with the Boys and Girls Clubs has helped me realize how lucky I have it. In spending time with these young men and women, I have the opportunity to see what it is like to truly “build a better man.” What has been your fondest memory of your Fraternity experience so far?
Attending RLS, LI, & WEC. The opportunity to meet other brothers and distinguished alumni has meant a lot and supplemented my growth in the Fraternity. Who in Delta Upsilon do you look to as a mentor? Two of our alumni, Rick and Paul Taylor. The Taylors exhibit the qualities of DU men in every facet of their life and spend more time helping the chapter than many of the undergraduates. Their commitment to their families, jobs, and DU has shown me what it means to be a lifelong member of our brotherhood. Who outside of Delta Upsilon do you look to as a mentor? Mindy Sopher, a close interfraternal friend and academic advisor. A three time survivor of breast cancer, who is again battling cancer, she inspires me to do more for the world around me. Her can-do attitude is truly inspiring and you can always count on her for a smile. What do you feel is most important for the future of the Fraternity? I believe that our Fraternity is faced with a rather large identity crises. The movement for fraternal values congruence is underway and we must join that movement. However, I feel that we must ﬁrst remember who we are, why we were founded, and why our existence is relevant in today’s ever changing global society. Only then can we unite in an united front for values congruence.

Hazing Hotline (1-888-NOT-HAZE)
As part of the ongoing attempt to end hazing on college campuses and particularly within Greek organizations, Delta Upsilon is one of 20 international fraternities and sororities that joined together to establish a Greek Anti-Hazing Hotline. The toll free number is 1-888-NOT-HAZE (1-888-668-4293). The line is available to those who think they or students they know, have been or may become victims of hazing. Callers may remain anonymous or they can provide personal information so that their concerns can be responded to directly. The Hotline connects to a dedicated voice mailbox at the Cincinnati law firm of Manley Burke, the publisher of Fraternal Law. Manley Burke will monitor the Hotline on a daily basis and will forward all messages to the appropriate fraternal organization, along with the hazing laws from the relevant jurisdictions. In states in which the law requires notification of other authorities, this will be done. A hazing alert for an organization not a sponsor will be handled as though that organization were a sponsor. A voluntary invoice will be sent to cover costs. The Hotline is a crucial new tool for Greek organizations to use to fight hazing. The 20 founding sponsors, representing approximately 35 percent of all fraternity and sorority members, have invited other fraternities and sororities to join as official sponsors of the Greek Anti-Hazing Hotline.
