Mortar Board is 101
Mortar Board celebrates its 101 st birthday on February 15, 2019. Women representing our founding chapters met on a cold February 15, 1918 morning in Syracuse, N.Y., to create a national honor society for college senior women. Little did they know that their legacy, a century later, would be a Society more than a quarter-of-a-million members strong. From the beginning, Mortar Board was more than a means of recognizing academic achievement. The Society brought together women leaders from all parts of campus, honoring them for their dedication to the Ideals of scholarship, leadership and service. While the years have brought both growth and change to Mortar Board, the commitment to our Ideals remains as strong today as it was in 1918. Celebrate this tradition during Mortar Board week February 11-16.
For the first time ever, Mortar Board, with the support of the Starlington Fund, offers the chance to recognize extraordinary collegiate members. Any member of the chapter may be nominated for this honor. The recipient of the prize will also receive $500 and a paid trip to the national conference to be part of the program. Nominations may be made by the entire chapter, an advisor, a section coordinator, a group of members, or a college or university official or faculty. The nominations form will go live on February 18 and nominations are due to the National Office on or before April 30.
Good advisors are critical to the success of a Mortar Board chapter. Recognize the outstanding service, guidance and support of your advisor by nominating them for the Excellence in Advising Award! Nominations are due on or before March 15.  Award recipients from the past five years along with Excellence in Advising with Distinction Award winners are ineligible to receive the award this year. A complete list of previous recipients is on our website.
