MEET QUINLAN STEIN, PI GAMMA MU CHAPTER DEVELOPMENT OFFICER

SteinPi Gamma Mu's Chapter Development Officer, Quinlan Stein, has served Pi Gamma Mu since June 1st, 2017 and in her time at Pi Gamma Mu has implemented new and effective strategies for chapter development growth. As Chapter Development Officer, Stein has developed effective strategies related to society growth, streamlined and organized the process of development, researched colleges and universities worldwide that may be suitable to host or reactivate a chapter, and contacted college and university faculty to solicit interest in housing or reactivating a Pi Gamma Mu chapter. Stein also aided in the planning and production of Pi Gamma Mu's 2017 Triennial International Convention in addition to designing electronic and printed promotional materials for the honor society. In the almost two years that Stein served at the Chapter Development Officer, Pi Gamma Mu has received thirty-five new charter applications and has had five chapters reactivate. As the Chapter Development Officer, Stein has contacted approximately 8,000 faculty members in all fifty states and abroad.

In December of 2018, Quinlan Stein completed her Bachelor's degree at Southwestern College, located in Winfield, Kansas, in just three and a half years. She graduated Cum Laude with a B.A. in History and minors in Religion/Philosophy and Leadership Studies. While at Southwestern College, Stein was also a part of the Honors Program through the Division of Social Sciences, a member of the Dean's list (Fall 2016, Fall 2017, Spring 2018, and Fall 2018), and received academic scholarships all three and a half years. Along with Dr. Jacob L. Goodson, Stein co-authored "William James on the Doctrine of Transubstantiation: American Transcendentalism vs. Roman Catholicism" in Signs and Wonders. She has also presented research projects at seven different conferences and occasions. For instance, Stein presented research titled, "Hope and Endless History: Utilizing the Past and Present to Create a Hopeful Future," at the University of Kansas Undergraduate Philosophy Conference on April 7, 2018, and "Intellectual Engagement: Designing Higher Education Study Environments," at Taking Leadership to the Legislature on March 26, 2018. Most notably perhaps was Stein's senior history thesis, "The Mothers of the Believers: Feminist Foundations in Early Islam," which was presented at The Conference on Faith and History on October 4, 2018, as well as at the Southwestern College Academic Showcase, on December 7, 2018.

As an undergraduate student at Southwestern College, Stein worked as an indexer and pre-publication editorial proof-reader for Dr. Jacob L. Goodson's recent 277 page manuscript, Strength of Mind. She also served as an undergraduate teaching assistant at Southwestern College for PHIL: 120: Ethics, Society, and Choices, and before coming to Pi Gamma Mu was employed as a Financial Aid Student Peer Advisor for the Southwestern College Financial Aid Office. Over the past three and a half years Stein has been a part of many extracurricular activities at Southwestern, some of which include, Leadership Southwestern (a service learning organization), President of the Southwestern College Philanthropy Board, Student Ambassador for Southwestern College Admissions, an At-Large Senator for the Student Government Association, Vice-President for InterAct (an international student organization), co-Director of the Rotary Youth Leadership Camp, Student Foundation, and Secretary of the Student Law Association.
            
Stein's effectiveness at soliciting new sponsors and chapters has led to societal growth and she has been an integral part of the International Headquarter Office of Pi Gamma Mu for nearly two years.  Dr. Suzanne Rupp, Executive Director of Pi Gamma Mu, said about Stein:

In her almost two years as Chapter Development Officer, Quinlan Stein has demonstrated innovation, faithful commitment to the goals of her position, and attention to detail which has led to unprecedented growth for the organization.  Her hard work and dedication have helped the Society grow during a very challenging time for all academic honor societies.  During her time at Pi Gamma Mu Stein has worked tirelessly to help the Society accomplish its mission to encourage and promote excellence in the Social Sciences and to uphold and nurture scholarship, leadership, and service.  We congratulate her on her success and wish the best in all of her future endeavors.

Due to her recent college graduation and new job acceptance, Quinlan Stein will be stepping down from the Chapter Development Officer position effective March 29th. She has accepted a job offer as the Digital Development Officer at Kansas State University Foundation in Manhattan, Kansas. Quinlan Stein has been a member of the Kansas Alpha Chapter of Pi Gamma Mu at Southwestern College since April 2017, sponsored by Dr. Cheryl Rude.
