Local residents Erin Alexander of Linden, a junior majoring in psychology, and Michael Dombrowski of Cranford, a senior majoring in international studies, who were among the University of Scranton students inducted into the international honor society for students of philosophy, Phi Sigma Tau.
Eligibility for nomination requires a major or minor in philosophy as well as excellence in philosophy works.
Induction of nominated students is based on voting results of philosophy faculty and current chapter members.
The University’s chapter of the honor society was established in 1982.
The purpose of Phi Sigma Tau is to encourage interest and activity among students and to promote ties between philosophy departments in accredited institutions.
Phi Sigma Tau publishes a journal, Dialogue, for student contributions in all areas of contemporary philosophical research.
Nearly seventy honor societies make up the Association of College Honor Societies (ACHS) are as divergent as knowledge itself. From forestry to physics, from highly specialized to general areas, these member organizations exist for one basic purpose — to further scholarship and achievement in the academic areas of their members, thereby providing a forum where interested and competent students may communicate and exchange ideas with faculty and students of similar interest on their own campus and throughout the world.
The University of Scranton is a Jesuit university located in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
Alexander has repeatedly been named to the Dean’s List, which recognizes students for academic excellence.
Dombrowski works as a member of the Summer Support Staff at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
