Founding of New Chapter of Iota Iota Iota (Triota) Honor Society
Virginia Wesleyan senior Kaci Wertz took the lead in bringing the Delta Sigma chapter of Iota Iota Iota to the Virginia Wesleyan campus, joining a nationwide coalition of student clubs recognizing academic excellence in women’s and gender studies. Wertz will serve as the chapter’s first president of Iota Iota Iota, which aims to promote interest in women's and gender studies, research in social issues affecting women and other social and intellectual activities that lead to improvement in the condition of all people. The society also encourages volunteerism, advocacy and activism within the community as important methods for supporting and maintaining the values central to the women's studies discipline.
“It is most appropriate to establish an Iota Iota Iota chapter here at the College during Women’s History Month,” said VWC President Scott D. Miller. “I encourage the campus community to join me in welcoming Delta Sigma—may its members be nourished by our community’s continued dedication to equality and education.”
