Chi Beta Phi is an interdisciplinary scientific honorary for undergraduates.  An affiliate society of The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) since 1935, the object of this organization is to promote interest in science and to give recognition to scholarly attainment in science.   

Due to the current pandemic, Chi Beta Phi has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 National Conference.

Advisors have been emailed additional information concerning this decision.  We look forward to being able to gather for a National Conference in 2022.



On May 18, 2019 the Honorary presented an award to Professor Paul S. Peck in recognition of over 3 decades of service and many contributions to the Honorary.  Most recently advisor to Alpha Iota Chapter, Professor Peck served in many roles at the national level.  Alpha Iota chapter received many national awards under his leadership.  He has left the chapter in very capable hands at Glenville State College and I am sure will continue to provide advice to the chapter.    

Summer 2019 - The Honorary presented an award to Dr. James E. Corrigan and Alpha Xi Chapter for 50 years of membership and contributions to the Honorary.  Dr. Corrigan has led the chapter for all 50 years of it’s existence and provided students with excellent opportunities to serve the campus and the larger community.
