Semi-annually the Mu Tau Chapter of Delta Sigma Pi, a premier co-ed business fraternity, is privileged to attend a provincial wide leadership conference known as LEAD (Leadership and Excellence Academies for Deltasigs). The members of Delta Sigma Pi attend insightful seminars, workshops, and are able to network with other chapters in the province. Awards are given out during LEAD, and this year the Mu Tau Chapter was recognized in its region, province, and on a national basis.
This semester the conference was held in Providence, Rhode Island where more than 40 Deltasigs from Mason and alumni were on hand to receive the awards listed below.
•Most Improved Collegiate Chapter (National)
•The R. Nelson Mitchell Outstanding Collegiate Chapter (Provincial)
•Most Improved Collegiate Chapter (Provincial)
•Outstanding Service Award for a Collegiate Chapter (Regional)
•Most Improved Collegiate Chapter (Regional)
•R. Nelson Mitchell Outstanding Collegiate Chapter (Regional)
•Outstanding Financial Operations Award for a Collegiate Chapter (Regional)
•Outstanding Scholastic Development Award for a Collegiate Chapter (Regional)
•Chapter of Excellence through participation in the Chapter Management Program (Regional)
Just what do all these awards mean? Any award won on a regional basis contends directly with, John Hopkins, James Madison, George Washington, Howard, Frostburg, Shepherd College, Frostburg State, and the University of Delaware. George Mason won 6 out of the 8 Regional Awards this year.
In addition the Mu Tau Chapter won two of the most prestigious awards given in the province. This province not only contains the schools listed in the region, but it includes many of the nation’s most prominent business schools including New York University, Cornell, University of Pennsylvania, Penn State, and Boston University, among others. The national award that the Mu Tau Chapter earned was the Most Improved Chapter in the Nation. The Mason Chapter went from being unranked to one of the top 3 chapters in the nation due to the hard work and dedication of its members.
“As the current president of the Mu Tau Chapter, I would have to contribute our success this year to our past president, Asad R. Ali,” said Paul Wang. “If it wasn’t for his vision to motivate the fraternity into the state as it is in now, we would have never dreamed of winning any of these awards.”
“I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with some of the most diverse and driven individuals in the School of Business. I want to give credit to their continuing hard work in their appropriate positions, putting on some of the most creative events the school has seen. I would also like to give recognition to our faculty advisors Dr. Sia Rose-Robinson and Constant Cheng and the supportive staff at the School of Business for their consistent wisdom and support throughout the years.”
