The Alpha Upsilon Alpha Honor Society has as its primary mission the recognition of scholarship. Through membership in the society, individuals are acknowledged as having excelled in their academic preparation. Further, the honor society acknowledges and fosters leadership and service to the profession.
Through membership in the honor society, undergraduate and graduate students will recognize the importance of professional commitment and be introduced to one of the primary resources in the field of reading/language arts – membership in the International Literacy Association.
An individual may become a member of the honor society by applying to or being nominated by the screening committee of an Alpha Upsilon Alpha chapter. There are five membership categories: undergraduate, graduate, faculty, professional, and honorary.
