Theta Chi at CWRU wins national fraternity’s highest honor for chapter excellence

Case Western Reserve University’s chapter of Theta Chi received the 2011/2012 Howard R. Alter Jr. Award for Chapter Excellence, the fraternity’s highest chapter honor. This marks the third time the Case Western Reserve chapter has won the Alter Award.

Eleven chapters—out of 131 total—were presented with the award at the fraternity’s recent national convention in Palm Springs, Calif. The Alter Award is presented annually to chapters that demonstrate excellence in scholarship, recruitment, new member and member education, community service and philanthropy, alumni programming, chapter financial management, the Ritual, chapter operations, internal cooperation, campus involvement, risk management practices, and social programming.

Consideration for the Alter Award is by application only. A committee of former and current Leadership and Education Consultants review the applications annually and selects each year’s winners.
