Sigma Tau Delta
An International English Honor Society
Sigma Tau Delta (ΣΤΔ) is an English honor society for students at accredited colleges and universities that grant baccalaureate or higher degrees. Established in 1924 to confer distinction for high achievement in English language, literature, and writing, it is dedicated to fostering literacy and all aspects of the discipline of English. The Montclair State chapter of ΣΤΔ is called Alpha Chi Mu (ΑΧμ). To qualify, students must meet particular academic criteria, including a 3.7 grade point average and junior or senior status. Eligible students are invited twice a year to apply.
Sigma Tau Delta boasts over 880 local chapters in the United States and abroad. These chapters meet regularly to plan academic, extracurricular, and social service activities. While faculty sponsors provide guidance, these activities are student-generated and student-run.
