Sigma Theta Tau Information

General Information

 

Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) is the official honor society of nursing. It is comprised of chapters that are located on more than 500 college and university campuses in the United States and countries throughout the world. STTI serves 130,000 members in more than 85 countries.

Individual membership is by invitation to baccalaureate and graduate nursing students who demonstrate excellence in scholarship and to nurse leaders exhibiting exceptional achievements in nursing. Tau Sigma originally celebrated initiation into Sigma Theta Tau in March of 2006. At that time, the chapter was supported by 36 transferring and/or dual members. During the chartering ceremony, 15 new members from the Columbia College of Nursing 2006 graduating class and nurse leaders from the community were inducted into Sigma Theta Tau International.

In 2013, Tau Sigma reached another milestone in its development.  Working in partnership with faculty from Ruth S. Coleman College of Nursing at Cardinal Stritch University, an application for a chapter charter amendment has been made and approved by STTI. The chapter charter has been amended to “Chapter – at – Large”.  This change is significant in the life of the chapter, as it will allow for more students, faculty, and nurse leaders to participate in its activities, contribute to its organization and represent nursing in a more meaningful way.
