The University of the Incarnate Word’s chapter of Alpha Chi National Honor Society will induct new members on Thursday, March 6, in Marian Hall Ballroom.
Invitations to membership are going out to UIW juniors and seniors whose grade point average is in the top 10 percent of their class, said the society’s two chapter faculty sponsors, Dr. Roger C. Barnes, a professor of sociology, and Dr. Stefanie Boswell, an associate professor of psychology.
The two professors said they are anticipating several students will accept the invitation because
membership in Alpha Chi recognizes outstanding academic achievement. Members wear their academic regalia at commencement.
“The university has had a chapter of Alpha Chi for more than 80 years and it is an important distinction for students who become members of this honor society,” said Barnes.
