Chapter 410, Bucknell University
The Bucknell Chapter of Sigma Xi is comprised of many faculty from each of our science and engineering departments. Our chapter promotes scientific activities at Bucknell by sponsoring lectures, nominating students for membership to recognize outstanding research, and hosting a poster session for summer student research. If you have any thoughts or suggestions to improve or expand the services provided by our chapter, please contact one of the chapter officers (Dr. Matthew E. McTammany, Chapter President; Dr. David D. Pearson, Secretary).

For more information about Sigma Xi, visit the society's website (www.sigmaxi.org). The following is an excerpt about Sigma Xi:
Sigma Xi was founded in 1886 as an honor society for science and engineering. Today, it is an international research society promoting the health of the scientific enterprise and honoring scientific achievement. There are nearly 65,000 Sigma Xi members in over 500 chapters at colleges and universities, industrial research centers and government laboratories. The Society is headquartered in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. In addition to honoring scientific achievement, Sigma Xi also endeavors to encourage support of original work in science and technology and promote an appreciation within society at large for the role research has played in human progress. During its centennial celebration in 1986, Sigma Xi adopted an additional mission: to foster worldwide interactions among science, technology and society.
Membership in Sigma Xi is by invitation. Those who have shown potential as researchers are invited to join as associate members. Full membership is conferred upon those who have demonstrated noteworthy achievements in research. Each year the Society initiates nearly 5,000 new members. Over the course of the Society's distinguished history, nearly 200 members have won the Nobel Prize and many more have earned election to the National Academies of Sciences and Engineering.
