Anderson Schools Student Club Singled Out for National Honor

September 24, 2001

ALBUQUERQUE – The University of New Mexico student chapter of Delta Sigma Pi has been honored by the national Delta Sigma Pi organization as the most community-oriented local chapter in the nation. Delta Sigma Pi is America’s foremost professional fraternity for men and women pursuing careers in business.

Dr. Howard Smith, Dean of The Anderson Schools of Management, offers his praise to the chapter. “Delta Sigma Pi is one of the oldest student organizations at Anderson, and we are always impressed with the devotion that these students demonstrate through their service to the community. In an age where undergraduates are perceived as not involved, this award proves that Anderson produces hard workers passionate about improving the world they live in.”

Delta Sigma Pi awards for outstanding community, university and Fraternity service are presented each year to one collegiate chapter which plans and implements the most effective and comprehensive programs of service to others. These programs may serve Fraternity members, other professional groups, the school of business, students in general, faculty, the university, neighbors, parents, alumni, townspeople, and the national organization.

In the 2000-2001 academic year, the UNM chapter participated in the following projects: Zoo Boo; golf tournament for Carrie Tingley Hospital; Roadrunner Foodbank drives; Habitat for Humanity; Joy Junction cleaning; Toys for Tots; Junior Achievement; painting Casa Esperanza; and the American Cancer Society’s Breast Cancer Walk.

The Anderson Schools’ Delta Sigma Pi chapter is not new to honors. In 2000 the chapter was also honored as the Most Improved Chapter and the Most Outstanding Chapter of the Desert Mountain Region.
