The Wheaton College chapter is the Omicron chapter of Sigma Pi Sigma, the 20th chartered since the society’s founding in 1921. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Sigma Pi Sigma national and the 90th anniversary of the chapter at Wheaton College.

“This year’s induction was held in a hybrid format due to our observance of COVID-19 protection measures at the college,” said Dr. Heather M. Whitney, advisor to Sigma Pi Sigma at Wheaton College. “One bright spot is that the hybrid format allowed family and friends of inductees to attend, as well as two alumni members of Sigma Pi Sigma.”Faculty and guests join the induction via the hybrid format (Image credit: Diana Sokolov)

“Additionally, this year’s induction was supported by a grant from the Sigma Pi Sigma national organization,” said Dr. Whitney. “We are very grateful for the financial support which increased our membership and increased the visibility of our chapter.”
