Barry University Chapter of Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society
Welcome to the Web page of the Barry University Chapter of Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society! As local representatives of Sigma Xi, we encourage and celebrate the spirit of scholarship, creativity and innovation that are fundamental to the scientific process. In our chapter's 22-year history, we have inducted almost 200 associate and full members, many of whom have gone on to lead productive careers in research-related fields. Our goal is to foster a supportive environment for budding researchers and a tight-knit community of established researchers on our campus and surrounding universities.
About Sigma Xi
Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society was founded in 1886 at Cornell University by Frank Van Vleck, a junior faculty member, and a group of engineering students. It is one of only four members of the Honor Society Caucus, which also includes The Phi Beta Kappa Society, The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, and Omicron Delta Kappa - The National Leadership Honor Society. Today, Sigma Xi is an international, multidisciplinary research society whose programs and activities promote the health of the scientific enterprise and honor scientific achievement. There are nearly 60,000 Sigma Xi members in more than 100 countries around the world.
