EDP Award Ceremony

Chi Alpha Epsilon Induction and Pinning

History and Purpose
CHI ALPHA EPSILON National Honor Society was formed to recognize the academic achievement of students admitted to colleges and universities through non-traditional criteria/opportunity programs. Dr. Elbert M. Saddler, Ph.D., founded Chi Alpha Epsilon (XAE) in 1990 at West Chester University of Pennsylvania and there are now over 30 chapters in the United States.

Eligible students must be full-time (12 credit hours) and hold a 3.0 cumulative GPA for two consecutive semesters.

A private initiation, which included ritual materials for each inductee, was conducted before the EDP Awards Ceremony. The pinning took place during the awards ceremony.
