Every year the brothers of Delta Upsilon devote much of their time to community service in the University and Charlottesville communities. The chapter also contributes to a variety of philanthropic causes, including but not limited to the Boys and Girls Club of America, UVA Children’s Hopsital, Habitat for Humanity, and The Haven at First and Market. Our chapter’s annual Delta’s House of Blues spring philanthropy event benefits the the Boys and Girls Club here in Charlottesville. The event features University, local and special guest artists and brings a taste of New Orleans to the University.
The Virginia chapter strives to participate in as many Greek and University philanthropy and service events every year. You will always find us at events like the ZTA 5k, Hoos in Sync, Corner Crawl, and Mid Autumns Carnival. We are always looking to sponsor new events and help raise awareness for noble causes.
The Delta Upsilon Global Service Initiative offers members a unique opportunity to work with global and local communities, while uniting Delta Upsilon competencies and principles with substantive volunteer service. Students travel to, study in, and work with communities where social and economic conditions are substandard. During the global experience, students engage in service-learning to make a meaningful impact in our global society to address the issues plaguing urban societies; these members will roll-up their sleeves to create or rebuild areas of need.
If you have any questions about service, please contact our philanthropy chair, Sean Lyons ’14.
