International Honor Society
Join Rowan University’s Delta Lambda Chapter of Phi Beta Delta
Phi Beta Delta, founded at California State University in 1986 is the first national honor society dedicated to recognizing scholarly achievement in international education.
The goals of the Society are: to recognize the scholarly achievement of international students and scholars, U.S. students who have studied abroad, and faculty and staff who are involved in international activities. It serves as a vehicle for the development of academic-based international programming, and provides a campus network for faculty, staff and students involved in international endeavors. This network extends to thousands of members in chapters across the country and throughout the world. Individuals who have demonstrated scholarly achievement in the international area are nominated for membership in Phi Beta Delta through the Chapter Governing Boards at colleges and universities.
There are three categories of membership: international students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement at their institutions; domestic students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement in the pursuit of academic studies abroad; and distinguished faculty, staff and visiting scholars involved in international endeavors such as teaching, administering exchange programs, conducting research, or providing services and programs to international students and scholars.
Once an individual is nominated, he or she is invited to the chapter's annual installation meeting and becomes an official member of the society.
