Publication Date: 9/7/2007

Twenty Rhodes students and two faculty members have been inducted into Iota Sigma Pi, a national honor society for women in chemistry.  The major objectives of the organization are to promote interest in chemistry among women students, to foster mutual advancement in academic, business and social life, and to stimulate personal accomplishment in chemical fields.

Iota Sigma Pi was founded in 1902.  Today, more than 10,000 members have been initiated and 40 local chapters have been established at various colleges and universities. The Rhodium chapter of Iota Sigma Pi, established in 2006, is the first group in Tennessee.
