Georgia Gwinnett College received approval on Oct. 29 from the International Leadership Council and Board of Directors of the Golden Key International Honour Society for the provisional chartering of the first honor society chapter on campus. Members of the Council and Board of Directors will visit GGC for a breakfast and campus tour today to discuss the details of the honor society’s establishment.

Although official final chartering is contingent upon accreditation, the Council approved GGC’s request for provisional status in order to provide membership to students who meet the Golden Key and institutional selection criteria for sophomores, juniors and seniors.

"The Golden Key International Honour Society not only provides students with a competitive academic honors program, but also places GGC at the forefront of academic excellence along with other competitive institutions across the state, country, and world," said Devi Drexler, GGC’s dean of student development.

Information about membership and selection will be finalized by a college committee and student invitations will be issued next semester.

“I appreciate all who have worked together to make this happen,” said Jim Fatzinger, associate vice president for student affairs. “This is another "first" to be celebrated by the GGC community and our students.”
