Delta Upsilon is a proud non-hazing fraternity and hazing of any kind is illegal and strictly prohibited at Miami University. We encourage all of our members to speak up if they ever feel uncomfortable. If they do not want to reach out to a brother or an advisor, Miami University and Delta Upsilon offer multiple ways to report issues.

The State of Ohio has recently implemented Collin’s Law which increases penalties, and requires additional educational programming on hazing awareness, prevention, intervention, and the Miami’s policy. Under Collin’s Law and University policy, hazing is defined as doing, requiring, encouraging or coercing another, including the victim, to do:

  • Any act of initiation into any student organization or other University sanctioned organization or athletic team; or any act to continue or reinstate membership in or affiliation with any student organization or other University sanctioned organization or athletic team that causes or creates a substantial risk of causing mental or physical harm to any person, including coercing another to consume alcohol or another drug.

Failure to intervene, prevent or report any act of hazing may also constitute a violation.

Since our founding, Delta Upsilon has been a non-secret fraternity. What that means is that all our Rituals and governing documents are open to the public. Most fraternities and sororities keep these items private — for members’ eyes only. However, Delta Upsilon believes in transparency. How could we let people know the true value of membership and what we stand for if we were to keep our most important documents and beliefs secret?

As a prospective member, we invite you to learn more about our Ritual and governing documents. Ask questions during the recruitment process. Just like other fraternities, we still have Rituals, like Initiation Ceremonies, that are rich in history and meaning. And structurally, we all host the same types of events. The DU difference is that we don’t keep any of it a secret.

Learn more about our Ritual.

*Please note that while Delta Upsilon is a non-secret Fraternity, we also respect our members’ privacy.

No, our chapter is too large for everyone to live in the house.  However, all eligible new members are required to live in the house for at least 1 year.
