Alpha Chi - At a Glance
- Alpha Chi is a national college honor society that admits students from all academic disciplines.
- Membership is limited to the top 10 percent of an institution's juniors, seniors, and graduate students.
- Invitation to membership comes only through an institutional chapter. A college seeking a chapter must grant baccalaureate degrees and be regionally accredited.
- Some 300 chapters, located in almost every state, induct approximately 12,000 members annually.
Alpha Chi is distinctive in that it involves members in all aspects of its operation: chapter officer leadership, student representation on the National Council, local chapter event planning, and presenting scholarly programs at national conventions. Alpha Chi members have been "making scholarship effective for good" since 1922.
