Delta Alpha Pi Honor Society to Induct Inaugural Class
Buffalo State College will induct its inaugural class of the Epsilon Chi chapter of the Delta Alpha Pi International Honor Society on Friday, March 6, at 3:00 p.m. in the LoRusso Alumni and Visitor Center's Zemsky Family Presentation Room. The ceremony is by invitation only.
Delta Alpha Pi International Honor Society was founded in 2004 to recognize the academic accomplishments of students with disabilities. In addition to recognizing academic achievement, Delta Alpha Pi seeks to lessen and eventually eliminate the stigma and negative stereotyping that have been associated historically with disability. The members of Delta Alpha Pi challenge society to view disability as an aspect of diversity, existing on a continuum throughout an individual’s lifespan, and encourage the implementation of universal design, so that the environment (learning, physical, attitudinal), not the individual, adjusts to provide access to all individuals.
Students who become members of Delta Alpha Pi identify themselves as honor students who have a disability. By their open acknowledgment of their disability status, they serve as role models for other students with disabilities and advance the goals of Delta Alpha Pi on their campuses and in the community.
The Buffalo State ceremony will recognize student academic accomplishments by honoring and acknowledging their determination and perseverance. Students will receive a Delta Alpha Pi lapel pin and certificate of initiation.
Please visit the Student Accessibility Services website for a continually updated list of students who wish to be recognized.
