WHAT IS THE ACHS?
The Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), founded in 1925, is the nation's only certifying agency for college and university honor societies. ACHS has been "Aiming Higher" for 90 years! Mu Kappa Tau is the only Marketing honor society accredited by this agency.
The mission of the ACHS is to build a visibly cohesive community of national and international honor societies that promotes the values of higher education, fosters excellence in scholarship, leadership, service, and research, and adheres to the standards of honor society excellence.
The ACHS sets standards for organizational excellence and for scholastic eligibility for honor societies. To assure member participation in governance, honor societies must be structured on a membership basis so that the interests of individual members are advanced. Not all organizations calling themselves "honor societies" subscribe to the high honors' standards of the ACHS. Member societies meet the rigorous standards of the ACHS, both the business model and the scholastic eligibility criteria.
Honor society membership, like most worthwhile things in life, does not come easily. Therefore, your membership is truly a matter of honor, reflecting exceptional academic achievement. Some of the ACHS benefits include:
- Recognition of Your Outstanding Academic Achievements
- Help to Make Career Choices
- Advance Your Professional Career
- Federal Employment
See the ACHS website for more details on these benefits and information on their partners that offer scholarships and internships. http://www.achsnatl.org/
