The Psi Upsilon Outstanding Junior Award is based on the recipient’s exemplification of the following values which embody our Fraternity:

(from the Constitution of Psi Upsilon Fraternity)


We who are or were students in universities and colleges throughout the United States and Canada and who believe in similar principles of life and standards of human conduct consider that the existence of a fraternal bond among us is eminently calculated best to promote our educational achievements, the development of our personal character and happiness and the overall interests of the universities and colleges of which we are a part. We believe further that we may thereby better contribute to a continual improvement and expansion of the educational system of these two great nations.


The objects of this Fraternity for which we stand united are (1) to make a significant contribution to the colleges and universities with which its undergraduate and alumni members are associated, to the communities in which its members reside, and to the great countries of the United States of America and Canada; (2) to promote the adoption of significant life goals by its members, together with plans for their fulfillment; (3) the promotion of the highest moral, intellectual, and social excellence and educational standards in all its members; and (4) the union of all its members in a firm and enduring friendship and true brotherhood for life.

(from the purposes and goals of The Psi Upsilon Foundation, Inc.)
