Honor societies have traditionally had chapters at universities across the United States, providing in-person networking and community building opportunities for members. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many universities have had to limit in-person gatherings and meetings. Additionally, HonorSociety.org recognized that having in-person chapters could create barriers to access and exclude students who may not have easy access to a physical chapter location.
To address these challenges and promote inclusion, HonorSociety.org made the decision to shift its traditional in-person chapters to online-only chapters. By doing so, members can continue to benefit from the resources and community-building opportunities of the organization, regardless of their physical location. Online-only chapters make it easier for members to connect and collaborate with one another, regardless of their geographic location, and allows the organization to be more inclusive of students who may not have access to a physical chapter location.
In addition to promoting inclusion, online-only chapters have also allowed HonorSociety.org to adapt to the changing needs of its members during the pandemic. By shifting to an online format, the organization can continue to provide valuable resources and opportunities for members to network, learn, and grow, despite the challenges of the pandemic.
In conclusion, HonorSociety.org's decision to shift its traditional in-person chapters to online-only chapters was made to promote inclusion and adapt to the changing needs of its members during the pandemic. This decision has allowed the organization to continue to provide valuable resources and opportunities for members, regardless of their physical location, and has made it easier for members to connect and collaborate with one another.
