Diamond Award for Exceptional Chapters


This award recognizes chapters that distinguish themselves by exceeding the Psi Upsilon Fraternity chapter standards. During visits to the chapters the staff assesses each chapter on its adherence to the standards and other subjective criteria, and then makes a recommendation to the Convention. More than one chapter can receive this award in any year and the Convention has the discretion to grant honorable mention to chapters which are nominated but do not receive the award. Delegates from the nominated chapters may be asked to make a brief presentation to the Committee or Convention.

Award of Distinction



The Award of Distinction was established by the 142nd Convention in 1985 to recognize Psi Upsilon chapters when they perform in an extraordinary manner. The award may be given annually to one or more chapters for any project, service, program, activity, or accomplishment performed during the year, which merits special recognition. Nominations, which may be made by undergraduates, alumni, Executive Council member, or Fraternity staff members, should be forwarded to the International Office by June 1st and include full details on the project, service, program, activity, or accomplishment for which the chapter is being considered. The Convention shall determine which chapters, if any, should receive the Award of Distinction.
