The English Department at UMSL sponsors membership in Sigma Tau Delta, the prestigious international English honor society. Sigma Tau Delta was founded in 1924 at Dakota Wesleyan University and is a member of the Association of College Honor Societies. The society supports over 750 active chapters in Europe, the Caribbean, and the United States and inducts in excess of 8,000 members annually.
Membership is open to students, faculty, and staff at UMSL who share an interest in literature, language, and literacy and includes opportunities for awards, scholarships, internships, and leadership activities. Both undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to attend national conventions and regional conferences, as well as prepare and present papers.
