By Lisa Erhart – Delta Mu Delta is the national honor society for undergraduate students obtaining business related majors. It is the highest scholastic recognition offered to students by the Department of Business and Leadership. Juniors and seniors who are majoring in business administration, accounting, or economics and are in the top 20% of their class are eligible to apply for Delta Mu Delta membership.
Accounting professor Chris McCullick, is the chapter advisor for Delta Mu Delta. He took a few minutes on November 16th to answer some questions for Jewell Business Today.
McCullick reported that Jewell chapter members of Delta Mu Delta just had their fall meeting at which the group discussed future events and elected new officers. The new officers for the coming year are President Kristen Agar, Vice President Lauren Berndt, Secretary Madison Giles, and Treasurer Rayna Downing.
As for future events, Professor McCullick and the society’s members are considering the idea of “matching current Delta Mu Delta members to Delta Mu Delta alumni” in hopes of creating a program that unites the past with the present, while forming and strengthening connections within the Jewell community. Other plans for this year include inviting business professionals to campus for presentations and providing networking events for students to attend.
A key goal of the WJC chapter of Delta Mu Delta is to help align Jewell’s business students with the college’s mission, and provide them with business and community service opportunities.
In the spring of 2017, Beth Hazels, assistant professor of business administration, will assume Professor McCullick’s role as the chapter advisor.
