1869 Founders Circle

Sigma Nu’s growth and excellence have been fostered by the commitment of like-minded individuals who believed that the development of ethical leaders for society should be a priority for higher education.  Our founders believed that such development rested on the principle of honor.  We are indebted to the following individuals who have made generous contributions totaling over $100,000 during their lifetime in support of ethical leadership and Sigma Nu’s role in its development.  These individuals are presented with a special lapel pin and gift at Grand Chapter to honor their commitment.
