Recognizing academic excellence and exemplary character.
Kansas Wesleyan University’s Kansas Delta chapter of the Alpha Chi National College Honor Scholarship Society recognizes the top 10 percent of KWU’s upperclassmen and women for their scholarship and outstanding academic accomplishments. Alpha Chi is a coeducational academic honor society. Since 1922, its purpose has been to promote academic excellence and exemplary character among college and university students and to honor those who achieve such distinction.
Induction into Alpha Chi
Alpha Chi chapters induct no more than the top 10 percent of juniors, seniors and graduate/professional students from each campus, representing all academic disciplines. With some 300 chapters and an active presence in almost every state, Alpha Chi National College Honor Scholarship Society actively promotes academic excellence, undergraduate and graduate research, campus academic dialogue and civic engagement.
Star Chapter Designation
Kansas Wesleyan University’s Kansas Delta chapter of the Alpha Chi National College Honor Scholarship Society earned the society’s Star Chapter designation for the 2014-20 school years.
