IU Granted Chapter of the Sword & Shield Honor Society
Immaculata University has been granted a chapter of the Order of the Sword & Shield, the academic and professional national honor society for homeland security, intelligence, emergency management, and all protective security disciplines.
“The Order of the Sword & Shield National Honor Society leads in the recognition of superior achievements in the Emergency Management and protective security academic disciplines,” stated George M. Schwartz, chair of the Professional Studies Program and chapter coordinator for Immaculata. “Omicron Sigma Sigma [the Greek designation] has inducted honor students from more than 65 schools across the country, and we are proud that we can recognize outstanding Macs in this field too.”
A benefit of having a chapter of the Sword & Shield is the ability to recognize deserving students enrolled in Immaculata’s Emergency Planning and Management program or the Criminal Justice program. Once a student has been selected for induction, they will receive formal recognition during the annual College of LifeLong Learning Honors Convocation held in April.
Created in 2010 to provide a mechanism to recognize and honor excellence in homeland security and related disciplines, the Sword & Shield Honor Society also strives to unite the best and brightest students, not only from an “academic achievement” standpoint, but from a “service” perspective as well.
Immaculata University is a Catholic, comprehensive, coeducational institution of higher learning, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
