BANGOR, MAINE - On April 29, Husson University inducted the charter class of Sigma Nu Tau, the entrepreneurship honor society. The mission of Sigma Nu Tau is “to promote, recognize, and reward academic excellence in entrepreneurship and to encourage and recognize the practice of principled entrepreneurship.”
The induction was part of an award ceremony held by Husson University’s College of Business. Husson’s chapter of Sigma Nu Tau is the first in the State of Maine and the 17th in the country. The 25 charter members included students, faculty, alumni and other honored guests who were bestowed with a lifetime induction into the organization.
“To become a member of this honor society, students must be juniors or seniors in Husson’s Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management concentration and have a grade point average of 3.2 or higher,” said Nancy Forster-Holt, Ph.D., CMA, executive director of Entrepreneurship and Executive Education at Husson University. “We also inducted faculty members who demonstrated excellence in entrepreneurship, through business ownership or in the classroom, as well as alumni and supporters of Husson University who excel in entrepreneurial pursuits. It was a powerful combination of talents.”
