Photo above: This spring, CSU Dominguez Hills students, alumni and faculty were initiated into Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society. Founded in 1886, the nonprofit organization has a membership of approximately 60,000 scientists and engineers who are elected to Sigma Xi because of their achievements or potential in research. More than 500 chapters of Sigma Xi are at universities and colleges, government laboratories and industry research centers.

In addition to publishing American Scientist, Sigma Xi awards grants annually to promising young researchers, holds forums on critical issues and sponsors a variety of programs supporting the sciences in engineering, education, policy and public understanding.
