Welcome to Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society
Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society is a general scholarship honor society open to junior, senior, and graduate students in all academic areas who meet the requirements of the society.
Our purpose is to promote high scholarship; to encourage sincere and zealous endeavor in all fields of knowledge and service; to cultivate a high order of personal living; and to develop an appreciation for scholarship and scholarly endeavor in others.
I pray you are safe and well. I am sure all of you have been attuned to the unrest that is taking place around us. In addition to adjusting to a health pandemic that has seized the world and forever changed the way in which we conduct our day-to-day lives, we are also confronting the longstanding pandemic of racism while heading into a presidential election of historic proportions.
As I have watched young people, in particular, step up to the plate, I have wondered what our students, our AKMuans, have been thinking about themselves, as well as their roles in these events and discussions. Therefore, we are providing a place for you to share brief entries, reflections, service activities, photos, and poems, etc. that capture your efforts, thoughts, fears, triumphs, and/or challenges with regard to what is transpiring in our nation and world. (This call is meant to be broad.)
Advisors, feel free to share your insights as well, keeping in mind, however, the goal of capturing this generation's perspective; hopefully, we can have a balanced representation.
This Special Pandemic Issue of the Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society Newsletter is set to be completed by the second week of July, so I ask that our members act quickly. Please send all submissions to [email protected] no later than June 30, 2020.
Thank you so much for your assistance, and blessings to you.
