Honors Induction Ceremony


CBAPP students and their families fill the LSU Ballroom every spring for the annual CBAPP Honors Induction Ceremony. The Ceremony is held to recognize students’ high academic achievement in their major. Their commitment to academic success is acknowledged by their induction into one of the following honors societies: Alpha Phi Sigma-Criminal Justice Administration, Delta Mu Delta-Business Administration, or Pi Alpha Alpha-Public Administration. Each society engages inductees in the society's recitation of the oath. The Dean, Faculty Advisors (Marie Palladini J.D., Kirti Celly Ph.D., and Rui Sun, Ph.D.), and Chapter Officers presents inductees with a membership pin and official society certificate.

Becoming a member of Delta Mu Delta is an honor indicative of earnest, intelligent purpose and rewarding achievement. The name Delta Mu Delta stands for the Greek phrase – DIA MATHESEOS DYNAMIS – which literally translated, signifies –THROUGH KNOWLEDGE, POWER – not the power of uncontrolled aggression, but the power to manage for social and economic good. Knowledge is not selfish or self-seeking, and the true student will seek and obtain knowledge for the greater purpose of helping others through service and transmission of things learned.
