Pi Lambda Theta
For many years, the School of Education has engaged in work with Pi Lambda Theta, one of the nation’s most prestigious education honor societies. Students with outstanding academic achievements receive invitation to be inducted in Pi Lambda Theta. These students are recognized at graduation by the gold honor cords they wear. The benefits of Pi Lambda Theta are significant and include scholarships to support undergraduate or graduate studies, discounted professional liability insurance, and professional connections with outstanding professionals in our field. Membership in Pi Lambda Theta signifies a student’s hard work and dedication to excellence in their studies and the teaching profession.
Each April the School of Education hosts an induction and recognition ceremony and reception for all eligible and joining students and their families. Students may run for office in our local chapter of Pi Lambda Theta. Annually, the student organization coordinates an event to benefit an outstanding service group or to draw attention to a need that affects children. When beginning your program in Education, aim for an invitation for membership in Pi Lambda Theta with a 3.5 GPA and demonstrating potential leadership in the teaching profession.
