You can choose to directly support IEEE-HKN or any of the strategically identified IEEE initiatives that help
meet the world's most pressing challenges and help us to realize the full potential of IEEE.
the annual Student Leadership Conference, is being
reimagined as an 11-day, interactive online event that
will be open to all IEEE-HKN members, students and
professionals alike.

Legacy HKN Leaders (l-r): John DeGraw, Tom Rothwell, and Eric Herz.

did not just have to augment its offerings with online
programming, it had to develop a new method of
delivering resources and Chapter support.
By 5 April 2020, the society developed a new online
Induction Ceremony, which holds fast to the 116-yearold ritual, and has been used by dozens of Chapters
and a Virtual Tutoring Center Initiative. On 31 May
2020, IEEE-HKN held its first Graduation Celebration
to recognize those who more than likely would not
have in-person graduation ceremonies. HKN Eminent
Member and Broadcom Founder Henry Samueli
offered advice over a live broadcast.

"Our students and faculty advisors built upon the
resources we provided and used their creativity to
mentor and tutor students, support their universities
through hosting online classes for younger students,
and came together for social events, such as online
scavenger hunts and trivia games, to stay connected.
Their commitment to IEEE-HKN and the brilliant way
in which they responded to the crisis underscores the
character these students possess and why they were
invited to join IEEE-HKN in the first place," Ostin says.
Only the top 25 percent of undergraduate university
juniors and the top 33 percent of university seniors are
invited to join. Graduate students, doctoral candidates
and professional members also are invited. As an
honor society, IEEE-HKN emphasizes its ideals of
scholarship, character, and attitude.
Many tech pioneers are members of IEEE-HKN,
including Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn, "fathers" of the
Internet; Martin Cooper, inventor of the first handheld
cell phone; Len Kleinrock, developer of the ARPANET;
Robert Metcalfe, inventor of the Ethernet.
They also include industry giants such as Norm
Augustine, former chairman and CEO of Lockheed
Martin; Larry Page, co-founder of Google, and Steve
Wozniak, co-founder of Apple.

The 2019 Student Leadership Conference attracted about
250 attendees to the program held at Tufts University.

Chapters have since shared best practices with one
another on monthly calls, and the first-ever IEEEHKN Tetris World Championship match was held,
strengthening the sense of community among its
worldwide membership.
A remote New Chapter Installation ceremony, which
was used to add three new Chapters, was developed
this summer. The Pathways to Industry program was
transitioned into a series of online webinars, and the
society's premier educational and networking event,

S. K. Ramesh, 2016 IEEE-HKN President and current
Chair of its Development Committee, says: "The
merger happened because of the vision and foresight
of champions like Bruce Eisenstein (IEEE President,
2000 and IEEE-HKN President at the time of the
merger), Stephen Goodnick (IEEE-HKN President
2011-2012), and John Orr (IEEE-HKN President
2013-2014), who guided us through the formative
years to make IEEE-HKN what it is today: A vibrant
globally diverse organization that engages students
and professionals, celebrates excellence in scholarship
and service, transforms individuals, and brings IEEE's
mission to life in communities worldwide."
