Nominations open for UNCG’s Golden Chain Honor Society

Faculty and staff are invited to nominate outstanding juniors and seniors for UNCG’s Golden Chain Honor Society, organized in 1948 to recognize students who have made significant and meaningful contributions to the university community.

The organization is unique to the UNCG campus.

“Golden” denotes excellence and rarity, and “chain” signifies linkage – a binding together of past generations of students who served the university with students of today and those generations yet to come.

Members embody the characteristics of leadership, scholarship, service, tolerance, judgement, magnanimity and character.

Golden Chain is now accepting applications for Fall 2017 inductions. Candidates must be juniors or seniors with a minimum 3.25 GPA. Nominations may be submitted by faculty, staff, Golden Chain alumni and honorary members. (Please note that accepted students must pay a $20 induction fee).

The nomination form and instructions can be found at sa.uncg.edu/golden-chain-honor-society/ and should be returned to Coretta Walker at crwalke5@uncg.edu by Oct. 25.
