Joliet, Ill. – International business honor society Delta Mu Delta (DMD) has awarded its University of St. Francis chapter, Delta Kappa, its Star Chapter Award.  This is the fourth time the USF chapter has earned the award (previous years included 2009, 2011 and 2016). The award is given to a select few universities out of over 200 chapters from across the world who exceed DMD standards for managing the chapter and its activities.

“The Star Chapter Award is a nice acknowledgement for all of our hard work,” said Amanda Dore, USF Visiting Professor of Accounting. “We are also celebrating the individual successes of our students.  This year, Morayma Barron and Jordyn Day were awarded scholarships from Delta Mu Delta. That is really a wonderful accomplishment.”

The scholarship awards were for $1,000 and $500, respectively.

Delta Mu Delta is an international honor society that recognizes academic excellence in Baccalaureate, Master’s, and Doctorate degree business administration programs within the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP)-accredited schools.  It is rare to be multiple winners of the award putting USF in the top 10% of DMD universities and 2% of ACBSP business programs worldwide.
