Pfeiffer Students Inducted into Delta Mu Delta Omicron Eta Chapter

Delta Mu Delta Inductees
Why Pfeiffer

Pfeiffer University’s School of Business is pleased to announce the newest members that were inducted into the Omicron Eta Chapter of Delta Mu Delta International Honor Society on September 30th, 2019.

The Omicron Eta Chapters of Delta Mu Delta – Pfeiffer Chapter inducted seven students from the Pfeiffer University School of Business who met the DMD requirements for entrance into the society.  Undergrad seniors having a GPA of 3.75 or higher and Graduate students who had completed more than half their required courses with at least a 3.95 GPA.  Dr. Holley inducted the new members into the Omicron Eta Chapter, telling the students “This honor can be obtained in only one way. It cannot be bought and I cannot give it to you, it must be earned.”  New members were then called up and received their awards from Dr. Lucas and Dr. Howard. 

The Omicron Eta Chapter also inducted two honorary members during the ceremony:  Dr. Raushan Gross and Professor Tina Preslar, CPA.  Honorary members were chosen based on the success of their profession and their interest in the student body.

Dr. Holley, Faculty Advisor for DMD, shared with those in attendance the history of Delta Mu Delta.  The Society was founded in 1913 by faculty from New York University who believed that recognition should be given to outstanding students.  Although the Society started as a local organization, chapters were later formed at other colleges and universities.  In 1952, a national chapter was organized to bind the individual chapters into a cohesive unit to carry forward the aims of the Society.  In 1963, Delta Mu Delta was admitted to the Association of College Honor Societies and in 1992, Delta Mu Delta formed a partnership with ACBSP, the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs.  Today there are over 300 chapters across the United States and abroad.  The purpose of Delta Mu Delta is twofold: to promote higher scholarship in education and to recognize and reward scholastic attainment in business subjects.

The School of Business faculty at Pfeiffer University is very proud of our students and their success; we know that they will go Beyond Boundaries.
