IDEALS OF PI GAMMA MU

There are seven ideals of Pi Gamma Mu. Do you know them?

  1. Scholarship – it is basic to all the rest. With knowledge, we can build society and better understand humanity and what has been thought and said and tried in all generations.
  2. Science – we need and admire the spirit of science – the firm belief that the problems that confront humanity can be solved if we will search out the facts and think clearly on the basis of those facts.
  3. Social Science – we shall never understand or solve the problems of human association until we examine the souls of people, the passions, prejudices, hopes and fears.
  4. Social Idealism – we believe in a human society fit for human life that humans themselves can build. “Where there is no vision the people perish.” We will not give up our vision.
  5. Sociability – specialization makes us narrow. Our social problems are complex. They will never be solved without the cooperation of all the social sciences and of those who study them.
  6. Social Service – the primary purpose of science is to know and to enable us to do. What we know we want to put to work for the benefit of humanity.
  7. Sacrifice – we are engaged in the greatest and finest of all the arts, the building of human society. Without giving freely, fully, and sacrificially of means, time, talent, energy and passion, all our other ideals will fall short and the contributions we hope to bring will never come.

The International Social Science Review is not forwarded by the post office, so we don't know whether you receive it. Just mail a change of address card, post card, letter, email (executivedirector@pigammamu.org) or go to our website (www.pigammamu.org) to change your address information. We need your name, as well as your old and new address.
