Pi Gamma Mu Key
International Honor Society in Social Sciences
The mission of Pi Gamma Mu is to encourage and promote excellence in the social sciences and to uphold the ideals of scholarship and service.

Dear Chapter Sponsors,

As you know, 2014-2015 is an important year for Pi Gamma Mu. The society celebrated its 90th anniversary in 2014 and this year we are focusing on growth.  In order to maintain fiscal stability and prepare for a strong future we must continue to grow by inviting more outstanding students who deserve to be honored by an inviation to become lifetime members and we ask for your help. 

Please review the following suggestions for increasing your chapter's membership:

  • Utilize your school's registrar or data specialists to request a list of all eligible students and invite all of those students to join.
  • Remember that graduate students are eligible to join.
  • Invite all faculty and administrators to become lifetime members.
  • Invite international visitors to your campus to join Pi Gamma Mu under the International Affiliate Membership category.  Criteria for membership:  Students, professors, administrators, and distinguished guests from other nations who have an interest in the social sciences.  These individuals generally are not invited to full membership because of their brief tenure on campus; consider honoring them with an invitation. 
  • Does your school have a growing online student population?  Remember that both online and on-ground students are eligible to join.
  • Promote the benefits of lifetime membership in your invitation letter:
    • Recognition for your high scholastic achievement,
    • Lifetime membership,
    • A handsome certificate worthy of framing,
    • A membership card,
    • A gold-plated keypin,
    • Access to the society's online newsletter and peer-reviewed professional journal,
    • The opportunity to apply for Pi Gamma Mu scholarships,
    • The opportunity to wear Pi Gamma Mu honor cords at graduation,
    • The opportunity to present research at Pi Gamma Mu conventions, and more!

Please remember that we are here to help you.  If there is anything we can do to assist you with your chapter's membership drive or any other matter, do not hesitate to contact us.  We look forward to hearing from you!

Sincerely,

Suzanne Rupp
Executive Director
