The first few months of the 2018 year have been busy. Our Student Leadership
Conference gave many opportunities for learning and networking. (Thank you
University of Florida for being an excellent host.) Two top undergraduates were
recognized with our Zerby/Koerner Award and twenty-four chapters received
chapter activities recognition. Six new chapters have joined our HKN community
and several others have charter ceremonies pending or have started the
application process. Eta Kappa Nu is on the move!
When we talk about HKN membership, we like to mention the facets of our
honor society that are expressed so well in the induction ritual. First, individuals
are invited to join based on our ideals of scholarship, character, and attitude.
Membership recognizes accomplishments as a student or as a professional,
reputation within ones professional circle, and willingness to be part of a
service-oriented community. Second, HKN provides opportunities for continuing
personal improvement. The ritual notes "you have a new way in which to
improve yourself. ... [through HKN involvement] you make yourself a better
engineer and citizen." Third, HKN has the express aim of encouraging excellence
in the profession, especially in education. The ritual challenges members "to
improve your chapter, your organization, your community, and yourself" as an
HKN community. The intents of HKN membership are not limited to college
scholarship and college experience. HKN is a lifetime designation of continuing
accomplishment and willingness to contribute to society, especially through the
HKN community.
IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu has a new Chapter Directory section on the website. This
section has been designed to provide useful information on your chapter and
to highlight your chapter and your campus. A chapter has options for a chapter
description, a campus description, images, links, multimedia, and more. An
example page for the Gamma Theta Chapter is shown. See hkn.ieee.org/
chapters/university-chapters/ for other examples and for the online form to
submit content. Let us know more about your HKN Chapter and University.
