Members of XAE pledge to continue to excel academically, promote academic excellence in others, and to help those who genuinely aspire to the same goals.
Chi Alpha Epsilon was formed to recognize the academic achievements of students admitted to colleges and the universities through non-traditional criteria and serves developmental, SSS,McNair Scholars, and Educational Opportunity Program students. Its purposes are to promote continued high academic standards, to foster increased communication among its members, and to honor academic excellence achieved by those students. The involvement of eligible alumni enables networking for members.
Programs sponsored by the society encourage other students to work toward this accomplishment. The honor society also has the potential to be a significant political force in the support of funding for developmental studies and educational opportunity programs nationwide. Please see the XAE national website for more information.
In addition to national criteria, all students who are inducted into the SEBS chapter will have demonstrated a commitment to servicing the community and supporting the goals and objectives of the Educational Opportunity Fund Program.
