Delta Epsilon Iota (DEI)
In January 2011 the Omicron Iota chapter of Delta Epsilon Iota became the first DEI academic honor society within The University of Texas System. Chapter participation provides a forum for leadership, community service, and valuable insight into career development issues through meetings, programs, and special events.
Since its inception in 1994, DEI's mission has been to educate members about career development, encourage academic excellence, and promote the principles of Dedication, Enthusiasm, and Initiative in all aspects of campus life. DEI is the nation's first and only academic honor society structured around career services. DEI is a registered student organization and is supported by the Career Center.
