On Saturday, April 5, 2014, the Lawrence Technological University College of Management welcomed its inaugural class of Delta Mu Delta inductees. Delta Mu Delta, international honor society in business, is an organization dedicated to recognizing students’ academic achievement in business subjects.
Dr. Betty Jean Hebel, regional representative for Delta Mu Delta, installed the Nu Alpha chapter at LTU as an official chapter in the society.
Following the installation, the chapter’s first honorary members were inducted into Delta Mu Delta. Nu Alpha’s initial honorary members are Dr. Virinder Moudgil, President of LTU; Dr. Maria Vaz, Provost of LTU; Dr. Anne Kohnke, Assistant Professor in the College of Management and new faculty adviser for Delta Mu Delta, and Dr. Jackie Stavros, Professor in the College of Management. These four honorary members were chosen based on their commitment to student success and dedication to the College of Management’s overall mission.
