Start a Chapter
Mortar Board’s National Council invites an institution of higher education in the United States to petition for a chapter of the Society as long as it is baccalaureate degree-granting and accredited by its regional accrediting association; intends to include the Society in the fabric of student life; and has a plan to provide perpetual support for the Society’s operation through 1) meaningful advising by qualified staff and faculty, 2) annual verification of grade requirements for all eligible candidates, and 3) modest financial support for onboarding of at least one chapter officer to attend the National Conference and of an advisor to attend LEAD.
