IEEE and Its Honor Society Eta Kappa Nu
Celebrate 10 Years Together
Stacey Bersani, Project Manager, IEEE-Eta Kappa Nu

With their merger on 1 September 2010, IEEE and its
honor society, Eta Kappa Nu (IEEE-HKN), created a
pathway for IEEE and IEEE-HKN to identify and develop
future leaders in the IEEE fields of interest. Ten years,
48 new chapters, 26,000 inductees, and hundreds of
thousands of community service hours later, IEEE-HKN
is an engine for innovation and excellence.
"The leadership of IEEE realized the potential of this
merger and many people worked tirelessly to make it
happen," says Bruce Eisenstein, 2000 IEEE President,
2010 HKN President. "We can look with pride at the
result today."
With 265 collegiate chapters in 19 countries, the honor
society has provided IEEE a way to reach and bring

into its volunteer and leadership
ranks the best and brightest
students, industry professionals,
and academics. Some 23 IEEE
presidents-and every one since
the merger-are HKN members.

The leadership of IEEE
realized the potential of
this merger and many
people worked tirelessly
to make it happen.
We can look with pride
at the result today.

IEEE-HKN also offers a strong
feeder system for IEEE societies
BRUCE EISENSTEIN
since HKN is populated with
ready and willing volunteers for
Science, Technology, Engineering
and Math (STEM) education outreach, tutoring,
humanitarian efforts, and committee and board-level
positions throughout IEEE.
In turn, HKN gained the resources to grow and
transform into a multi-faceted, vibrant, global society.
All of HKN's international growth occurred since the
merger: The honor society now
has 26 chapters in Regions 7-10. About 3,000
new members (from Regions 1-10) are inducted
into IEEE-HKN each year.

IEEE President, and Bruce Eisenstein, HKN President (2010).

THE BRIDGE

"IEEE-HKN embraces its roots as an American
university honor society, but it has grown into a global
professional organization that brings professional
development, career development, life skills
development, and leadership skills development
