Florida Memorial University’s Delta Mu Delta Chapter named Star Chapter for 2013
MIAMI, FL – The Delta Mu Delta chapter at Florida Memorial University (FMU) has been named a STAR Chapter by the Delta Mu Delta International Honor Society in Business for 2013 for a second time. This recognition is given annually to chapters who exceed Society standards for operation and administration. This year, only nineteen out of approximately 300 chapters have received the designation as a Star Chapter.
Delta Mu Delta (DMD) Star chapters exceed expectations by increasing its membership over the prior year, participating in the DMD scholarship competition, and/or by completing a community service project, or business-related activity on campus. “FMU is honored to receive this recognition for 2013. It is a testament to the dedication and distinction of the FMU business students,” stated Dr. Cheulho Lee, the organization’s academic advisor for the past year. Since its inception in 2001, the FMU chapter has inducted over 213 students from its School of Business into the honor society. During the 2012-13 academic years, the chapter inducted 12 students including Finance, Accounting, and Business Administration majors. Dr. Lee also expressed gratitude to the commitment of faculty and staff that have continually contributed to the chapters’ success.
The FMU chapter of the DMD International Honor Society in Business will be officially recognized at the Biennial National conference in San Antonio, Texas in November 2013. DMD is accredited by Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs, (ACBSP) at the baccalaureate, graduate and doctoral levels and has chapters throughout the United States.
