The Alpha Lambda Chapter of the Delta Mu Delta international honor society in business was established at Jewell in 1970. In the past 40 years, more than 400 students have joined Jewell’s chapter, and more than 155 million people worldwide are members. Delta Mu Delta promotes higher scholarship in training for business and recognizes and rewards business administration students who have distinguished themselves scholastically.
A reception for alumni and current members was held last October in the Yates-Gill College Union, and the Department of Business and Leadership faculty and Jewell administrators also attended the celebration. Donald M. Huntington, the Department of Business and Leadership’s first Executive-In-Residence, was named an honorary member of Alpha Lambda Chapter. Department Chair Dr. Kelli Schutte shared the changes and initiatives in the department and those anticipated for the coming year.
After the reception current officers and members presented information about Delta Mu Delta to the Jewell student body, faculty, administration and friends during the College’s weekly “Jewell Time” gathering in the Union.
A newly framed charter for Alpha Lambda Chapter will hang in the first floor lobby of Jewell Hall near the Department of Business and Leadership.
