Starting a New Sigma Zeta Chapter

 Sigma Zeta welcomes the formation of new campus chapters interested in furthering the purpose of the society as stated in the mission statement:

Steps to forming a Sigma Zeta chapter at your College or University:

  • Gather a group of science and math students and faculty interested in a science honor society for all science and math students.  Sigma Zeta includes all science and Math oriented departments, majors, and students. Especially important is one or more faculty willing to actively encourage and support your local Sigma Zeta chapter and to hopefully also become involved with the National Sigma Zeta organization.

  • Submit a new chapter application form.
