The Alpha Eta Society – KU Chapter

The Alpha Eta Society logoFounded in 1975, the purpose of the Alpha Eta Society is the promotion and recognition of significant scholarship, leadership, and contributions to the allied health professions. This national scholastic honor society was named for the Greek letters alpha and eta, equivalent to the first letters of "allied health."

The KU School of Health Professions received notice of its successful application to join the Alpha Eta Society in the fall of 2018, becoming the 88th local chapter of the national organization.

The KU chapter includes students, faculty, and alumni from the school's programs in clinical laboratory science, dietetics and nutrition, health information management, hearing and speech, occupational therapy, physical therapy and rehabilitation science, and respiratory care.

For more information, please contact Jeff Radel, Ph.D..

Induction Ceremony

Faculty and students from the School of Health Professions were inducted into the KU chapter of the Alpha Eta Society during the inaugural KU Medical Center induction ceremony May 15, 2019.

To our regret, the normal scheduling of the induction ceremony during the 2020 spring term was disrupted by COVID-19 restrictions. An in-person induction ceremony will be planned when faculty, staff, and students are allowed to return to more regular gatherings on campus. Please check back for updates or reach out to Jeff Radel, Ph.D.

During these events, inductees are presented with official membership certificates as well as any membership pins or honor tassels they have reserved.
