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,

First and foremost, thank you for your continued support of Pi Gamma Mu!  It is you, the chapter sponsors, who keep Pi Gamma Mu going and we owe you a debt of gratitude.   Without the new initiates you induct into your chapters each year, Pi Gamma Mu would cease to exist.  In order to prepare for a strong future we must continue to grow by initiating more outstanding students and we need your help.  If you increase your chapter’s membership by 20% or more as compared to the previous year, we will: 1) write a letter to your college/university president, 2) send you a Pi Gamma Mu Star wall plaque, and 3) recognize you in our Newsletter, journal, and on our website.

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

  1. If your school has satellite campuses, invite eligible students from all campuses to join your chapter.
  2. Utilize your school’s registrar or data specialists to request a list of all eligible students and invite all of those students to join.
  3. Remember that graduate students are eligible to join.
  4. Invite faculty and administrators to become lifetime members.
  5. Does your school have a growing online student population?  Remember that both online and on-ground students are eligible to join.
  6. If you use an electronic invitation, please email the invitation 2 or 3 times in order to increase the response rate.
  7. Make use of Pi Gamma Mu’s interdisciplinary nature and invite students and faculty from various departments.
  8. 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,
    • Opportunities to publish in the society’s 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,
    • A valuable item for your resume,
    • Advancement in Government Service Rating,
    • 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
