Beta Gamma Sigma Center for Ethical Business Leadership

After much planning and work, Beta Gamma Sigma recently opened the EBL Center at www.EBLCenter.org. The first stage of the Center offers access to a great deal of information through short clips of video arranged under a variety of topics. It is planned that in the future there will be transcripts, corporate background information, message boards, blogs, and much, much more. 

In 2006, the goal was shared by President John Wholihan: "We plan to develop ways to encourage business leaders to adhere to the highest ethical standards, and to show that this is one of the most important aspects of leadership in the 21st Century. . . . The society plans to emphasize that good ethical behavior in business is more often than not a result of leaders, at al levels, displaying the courage and conviction to make the right choices at the right times" (BGS International Exchange, Spring 2009).

ACHS Announces Adviser Grant Program

Social Responsibility: The Power of the Association of College Honor Societies to Make a Difference

A Chapter Leadership Project


Award Recipients

The following societies have engaged numerous partners, including other honor societies and student organizations.

DAHLONEGA, Ga., April 15, 2008 -- North Georgia College & State University's honor societies have donated $2000 to activate Lumpkin County's new 2-1-1 help line. Once the 2-1-1 line goes into service on July 7, a Lumpkin County resident will be able to dial the three-digit number in order to reach an operator who will refer the caller to an agency that
will help with chronic health problems, financial problems requiring help with food or shelter, or other needs for social services.

According to Dr. Gessell, the NGCSU executive director of regional engagement, "This resource will support the quality of life of our neighbors. The 2-1-1 line will help social-service and health-care providers, as well as members of the community."

Participating in this Council of Honor Societies project were Alpha Kappa Delta, sociology; Alpha Phi Sigma, criminal justice; Beta Gamma Sigma, business administration; Phi Eta Sigma, freshmen; Pi Delta Phi, French; Pi Gamma Mu, social sciences; Pi Sigma Alpha, political science; Psi Chi, psychology; and Sigma Theta Tau, nursing. The Council of Honor Societies coordinated the project and provided funding as well.
