The Psi U Cares grew out of the current mental health issues members face and the opportunities that fraternities have to assist and support. First recognized by the 173rd Convention in 2016 and reaffirmed at the 177th Convention in 2021 the Psi U Cares program focuses on educating our members and giving them resources to help lessen the stigma of mental health issues and help them find resources on their campus and within their community.
The Psi Upsilon Foundation’s Social Impact Fellowship Program provides up to $10,000 in annual grants for the professional development of leaders in social-impact driven professions. In 2022-23 the following brothers are being recognized:

In 1853 Yale University printed “Songs of Yale”, which is known as the oldest college songbook in the United States. But four years before that, also printed in New Haven, CT, Psi Upsilon printed its first songbook in 1849 – making it not only the first fraternity songbook, but also the first college songbook in the United States!
The original Psi Upsilon Songbook was a pamphlet of sixteen pages, containing no music, and only 9 songs. By 1891 the Tenth Edition of the Songbook had over 170 Psi Upsilon songs and music for each!
