Association of College Honor Societies

The Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS), founded in 1925, is a predominantly American organization that serves a number of functions with respect to national collegiate and post-graduate honor societies. In particular, it is a certifying body for such organizations, facilitates communications between them, and provides both scholarships and an outlet for publication to members.

The ACHS was formed in 1925, in response to concerns about the unregulated nature of honor societies. Four organizations were represented at a preliminary meeting held on October 2, 1925. They were Alpha Omega Alpha, the Order of the Coif, Phi Beta Kappa, and Sigma Xi. Two other organizations, Phi Kappa Phi and Gamma Sigma Delta, sent word of their interest, although they were unable to attend.

Famous quotes containing the words association of, societies, honor, college and/or association:

    With all their faults, trade-unions have done more for humanity than any other organization of men that ever existed. They have done more for decency, for honesty, for education, for the betterment of the race, for the developing of character in man, than any other association of men.
    Clarence Darrow (1857–1938)

    It is fatally easy for Western folk, who have discarded chastity as a value for themselves, to suppose that it can have no value for anyone else. At the same time as Californians try to re-invent “celibacy,” by which they seem to mean perverse restraint, the rest of us call societies which place a high value on chastity “backward.”
    Germaine Greer (b. 1939)

    Let fame, that all hunt after in their lives,
    Live registered upon our brazen tombs,
    And then grace us in the disgrace of death;
    When spite of cormorant devouring Time,
    Th’ endeavor of this present breath may buy
    That honor which shall bate his scythe’s keen edge,
    And make us heirs of all eternity.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    The mode of founding a college is, commonly, to get up a subscription of dollars and cents, and then, following blindly the principles of a division of labor to its extreme,—a principle which should never be followed but with circumspection,—to call in a contractor who makes this a subject of speculation,... and for these oversights successive generations have to pay.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    ... a Christian has neither more nor less rights in our association than an atheist. When our platform becomes too narrow for people of all creeds and of no creeds, I myself cannot stand upon it.
    Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906)
