2016 Faculty and Student Alpha Eta Initiates

2016 Faculty and Student Alpha Eta Initiates

Published: Friday, December 16, 2016

Congratulations to the students and faculty that were inducted into the Alpha Eta National Honor Society on December 15, 2016.  Alpha Eta is the National Honor Society of the Allied Health Professions whose members represent the top ten percent of graduates of Allied Health Schools and Colleges. Students eligible for membership in Alpha Eta are selected annually. Student initiates, faculty initiates, and their families were honored at the initiation banquet where they were presented a certificate along with a pin and cord to be worn at graduation with their regalia.

There are over 80 chapters nationwide and more than 25,000 members that have been initiated since the beginning of Alpha Eta in 1975.  The University of Oklahoma Chapter at the College of Allied Health is the founding chapter in Oklahoma (November 1982). The primary purpose of the Society is to recognize excellence and promote leadership and scholarship in the allied health professions.  The student and faculty initiates for 2016 are the epitome of what Alpha Eta represents.  

Congratulations to the 2016 Alpha Eta Student and Faculty Initiates!
