Alpha Sigma Lambda

Alpha Sigma Lambda Continuing Education National Honor Society

In 1945, Dr. Rollin B. Posey founded Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society to recognize and honor those dedicated adult students who, while adroitly handling their life responsibilities, achieve and maintain high scholastic standards.  The Society not only brings together outstanding students and faculty, but also offers each individual an exposure to interests other than his/her own.   The Morgan State University Gamma Pi Chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda was chartered in 1984.  After an eleven year absence from the campus, it was reinstituted through The Center in 2007.

The aim of Alpha Sigma Lambda is to acknowledge the special achievements of adults who accomplish academic excellence while facing competing interests of home and work.  To the adult learner in higher education, Alpha Sigma Lambda stands as an inspiration to scholastic growth and an invitation to associate with similarly motivated students.  Alpha Sigma Lambda is dedicated to the advancement of scholarship and recognizes high scholastic achievement in an adult student's career.
