- Phi Alpha National Social Work Honor Society -Graduate Level
The purpose of Phi Alpha Honor Society is to provide a closer bond among students of social work and promote humanitarian goals and ideals. Phi Alpha fosters high standards of education for social workers and invites into membership those who have excellence in scholarship and achievement in social work.
The concept of a national social work honor society came from a group of undergraduate social work students at Michigan State University in 1960. Investigation revealed that local chapters formed a National Honor society Committee in November 1960. For more than a year this committee worked on the constitution and other administrative matters. The name Phi Alpha and the key were adopted from the local chapter which existed at Florida State University. The Constitution and formal organization were completed in 1962, and six chapters quailed to become “charter chapters”. They were Florida State College, University of Dayton and the University of Tennessee. Over 110 Chapters are now in existence, and the addition of new chapters is continuing. The University of Akron Chapter was newly formed in 2008.
- Alpha Alpha Alpha & Phi Alpha National Honor Societies - Undergraduate Level
Alpha Alpha Alpha Honor Society was established in 1978 by John H. Ramey as an honorary fellowship of Social Work students at the University of Akron.
The Society was founded to honor those students who have demonstrated, by virtue of their academic performance and strength of character, that they exhibit excellence as representatives of the social work profession and as members of the university community.
