Alpha Chi is an academic honor society that recognizes and promotes excellence in scholarship among college and university students of good character. Classified as a general honor society, meaning that it accepts members from all academic fields, Alpha Chi inducts no more than the top 10 percent of junior, senior, and graduate students at member institutions.
Members receive recognition as distinguished students and members of one of the largest college honor societies in the world.
Faculty sponsors Dr. Louise Bailey, associate professor of education, and Dr. Terence Kite, professor of physics, lead the York College chapter. This year, Chris Luther, assistant professor of education, has been recognized as an honorary faculty member, selected by the students.
Dr. Bailey says that in addition to promoting scholarship at YC, the York Chapter of Alpha Chi is a service organization. They are looking for service opportunities for the year and making plans for how they will give back.
