Our program is a member of the national social work honor society, Phi Alpha. Our chapter, Iota Rho, was founded in 2000.
"Through knowledge - the challenge to serve."
The purposes of Phi Alpha Honor Society are to provide a closer bond among students of social work and to promote humanitarian goals and ideas. Phi Alpha fosters high standards of education for social workers and invites into membership those who have attained excellence in scholarship and achievement in social work.
The requirements to become a member of Castleton's chapter, Iota Rho, are a 3.0 overall GPA and a 3.5 GPA in social work required courses, including those which are not social work courses. Please let Professor Ellenbrook know no later than April 1 if you are applying for membership. Certificates from Phi Alpha will need to be ordered by April 15. The program will pay the membership fee. You may choose at your expense an honorary cord from Castleton's College Store by April 15. In 2010, the cost was $11.00.
For more information, please contact Dr. David Ellenbrook, Chapter President.
