THE SOCIETY OF SIGMA XI

Sigma Xi

Sigma Xi, the National Honorary Scientific Research Society, was founded in 1886, and the Amherst Chapter was installed March 23, 1950. As one of its pur­poses, the Society gives recognition of those students, members of the Faculty, research associates, and alumni who have demonstrated ability to carry on con­structive scientific research or who show definite promise of research ability. Other functions are the maintenance of companionship among investigators in the various fields of science, the holding of meetings for the discussion of scien­tific subjects, and the fostering of an interest in scientific research in the College.

Undergraduates who show definite promise of research ability are typically recommended to associate membership by the departments concerned.
