Career Development Honor Society Induction Set for Sunday at NJIT

Delta Epsilon Iota (DEI) Academic Honor Society will induct 169 NJIT undergraduate students, many of them members of the NJIT Albert Dorman Honors College, on Feb. 21, 2010 at 3 p.m. in the Campus Center Atrium. 

DEI is a national honor society with a focus on career development. The academic requirements for induction are a 3.30 GPA and at least the status of a sophomore. 

The goal of the new chapter is to ensure that NJIT’s brightest students do their best to prepare themselves as professionals. 

The group’s first event will be a Speed Networking Night, co-hosted with Career Development Services and Alumni Relations.    At the event, set for March 31, 2010, students will be able to network with successful NJIT alumni who will provide advice and insight. 

Other upcoming events will include a community service activity, more career-related workshops and corporate guest speakers.  DEI hopes to provide valuable opportunities to enable NJIT students to become more pro-active in their career and professional development.

From its inception, the mission of DEI has been to educate members about career development issues, encourage students to excel academically and promote the principles of dedication, enthusiasm, and initiative in all aspects of campus life. Over the years, the Society has embraced these values and today is one of the leading academic development organizations serving higher education.

Outstanding scholars, many of whom attend the nation’s finest educational institutions comprise the membership. Organizational vision and cutting-edge resources have made the Society synonymous with leadership and excellence in academic life.   For more information, please click here.
