In 2014, the Lee Honors College formed a new chapter of Tau Sigma, a national honors organization for transfer students dedicated to "recognizing and promoting the academic excellence and involvement of transfer students." Open to all honors college students who have transferred to Western Michigan University, we inducted our first class of members in the spring of 2015. Associate Dean Jane Baas and Anthony Helms, Lee Honors College assistant director of academic advising, as well as Steve Miller, coordinator, Transfer Transitions, First Year Experience Programs, serve as advisors to WMU’s chapter. Visit the Tau Sigma website for more information.
The next Tau Sigma Induction Ceremony will be held in March 2016. New transfer students entering WMU in fall 2014, spring 2015, summer 2015 and fall 2015 who meet the requirements will be invited to join.
