Alpha Chi

Alpha Chi is a national honor society emphasizing scholarship and service. CUW traditional undergraduate students who are academically ranked in the top 10% of their class are invited to participate.

The invitation to join Alpha Chi is an honor reserved for CUW’s most outstanding students. It is an important recognition of their distinguished university career, and members of Alpha Chi receive special academic honor cords to wear at graduation. Furthermore, citing membership in Alpha Chi on your résumé marks you as a person of the highest academic achievement.

However, Alpha Chi is more than a résumé enhancer. Unlike many honor societies, Alpha Chi is an active service organization, with activities planned by the local chapter, along with district gatherings, publications, and regional and national conventions. At the regional and national conventions, members have the opportunity to present papers and compete for cash scholarships.

The Concordia chapter of Alpha Chi (known as Wisconsin Gamma 287) organizes activities throughout the academic year. During both Fall and Spring semesters we provide service and cultural opportunities for our members.

Information about the national chapter of Alpha Chi may be found here.
