Membership in Sigma Tau Delta opens an impressive range of exciting new opportunities to students. With your support, the sky is the limit for these outstanding students. Please consider giving to the Sigma Tau Delta Fund.
The Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society recognizes outstanding academic achievement in English studies by undergraduate and graduate students. Chartered in December 2005, the Alpha Nu Pi chapter at Western Michigan University has been designated “one of the most active and vital chapters in the country” by the national organization.
Students who qualify for membership in Sigma Tau Delta must pay a one-time fee of $50 ($40 to the national organization and $10 to the local chapter at WMU), which entitles them to lifetime membership. In the past, a number of qualified students have had to decline membership because they could not afford this fee. In response, we launched the Sigma Tau Delta Fund, with the goal of making membership free to every student who meets the society’s academic standards, beginning with the 39 members of our Fall 2009 induction class and for all new inductees thereafter.
Since 2009, support for free membership has come from the College of Arts and Sciences and the Department of English at WMU as well as generous individual gifts from WMU faculty, staff, and alumni, and other friends of Sigma Tau Delta.
Your tax-deductible donation in any amount will help to fund these lifetime memberships.
Secure online contributions can be made here. The link should take you directly to the Sigma Tau Delta page at the WMU Foundation. If it does not take you directly to our page, please scroll down the page you land on to the link labeled Sigma Tau Delta Honor Society – English Department.
Many thanks for your support of Sigma Tau Delta!
