We’re entering the final days of Pride Month! We’ve enjoyed spotlighting important campus organizations and scholarships dedicated to making schools/campuses a safer and more inclusive environment for people in the LGBTQ+ community. Today’s spotlight goes to the organization PFLAG.
Founded in 1937 at Tennessee State University (then Tennessee A&I College), Alpha Kappa Mu is an all-encompassing honor society recognizing academic excellence across all areas of study. It was born out of an idea of the Dean of Tennessee A&I along with representatives from five colleges with already established honor societies on their campuses.
It’s Earth Week! Campuses across the US are known for actively working to reduce their carbon footprint and there are organizations out there holding them to those commitments.

Founded in 1910 at Stevens College in Missouri, Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for students studying at four-year and two-year colleges and universities, though it is most popular among community college settings.

Founded in 1836 as Georgia Female College, Wesleyan College was the first college in the world established to grant degrees to women. It was created after local citizens alongside members of the Methodist Episcopal Church saw growing concern of the current limitations of higher education access for women. Upon opening their doors officially in 1839, Wesleyan was considered progressive for their liberal arts education centered around sciences.
Historically Black Colleges and Universities were established before 1964 for the sole purpose of academically serving African American students. Previous to their existence, and during segregation in the United States, Black students were largely prevented from receiving higher education due to racial discrimination, with the majority of colleges catering predominately to white students and disqualifying the majority of Black students from attending.
The act of nullifying an honorary degree is rare, as the award is typically set aside for individuals who have made a great positive impact on the world as a way to recognize their accomplishments, but it does happen.
