Association of College Honor
Societies National Project
Kappa Omicron Nu
has the opportunity along with other ACHS members to focus on a the important
issue of personal and professional ethics. This project lends support and
encouragement to promising young adults as they strive to meet their full
potential as future leaders in their respective fields.
Such potential is found not on the surface of a person, where the worthy goals
of achievement and knowledge shine brightly for all to see. Instead, a person's
full potential can only be reached by building upon the core of one's character,
by encouraging honesty, trustworthiness, integrity . . . ethics.
Because these issues cross all academic lines, chapters can exercise creativity
to promote ethics across professional boundaries. This project serves as a
unique opportunity to collaborate with other ACHS honor societies on campus.
ACHS resources can be found on a link on the Home page: www.achsnatl.org.
