The Texas Southern University chapter of National Society of Collegiate Scholars (TSUNSCS), a national honors organization that recognizes and elevates high achievers, has been reinstated on campus.
Low membership forced TSUNSCS to take a hiatus in 2013, but a new set of officers have revived TSUNSCS. The group is committed to influencing student scholarship, leadership, and service.
“TSUNSCS chapter is a very important organization on campus because it highlights the scholastic aptitude of TSU students,” said Goodluck Ijezie-Desbois, chapter president. “Our goal is to uplift our fellow classmates and give them opportunities to be engaged on campus and within our greater community.”
TSUNSCS is hosting Integrity Week this week (Feb. 6 – 10) to raise awareness about ethical behavior with fellow students. Chapter members are capturing students on video to find out where they stand on academics, wellness, career goals, character and social integrity. The clips will be shared to foster discussion and action.
The National Society of Collegiate Scholars (NSCS) provides career and graduate-school connections, leadership and service opportunities, and awards a million dollars in scholarships annually. TSUNSCS was founded in 2006. Dr. Haiqing Sun, professor of Spanish and director of Spanish Study Abroad program, was instrumental in bringing NSCS to campus and has served as the organizations adviser since its inception.
