Dr. Steve Hoekstra, Professor of Psychology, Chair of the Division of Social Sciences and Chair of Interdisciplinary Studies Program at Kansas Wesleyan University, was appointed to the National Council of Alpha Chi.
The National Council, Alpha Chi’s chief governing body, is an elected, 22-member governing body composed of 15 faculty members and seven students. The faculty members, who also serve as sponsors of local chapters, serve four-year terms, and the students are elected to two-year terms.
They work via committees year-round and culminate the work year in a national board meeting held during the society’s annual national convention.
Hoekstra will begin his first four-year term as member-at-large to the National Council.
Alpha Chi National College Honor Society invites to membership juniors, seniors and graduate students from all disciplines in the top 10 percent of their classes. Active on nearly 300 campuses nationwide, chapters induct approximately 11,000 students annually.
