UB Chapter History
The University at Buffalo chapter of Golden Key International Honour Society was chartered on April 6, 1989. It is one of the 24 chapters that comprise the Northeast Region. Dr. Peter Gold established UB's chapter with the hopes of seeing a university-wide honor society that recognizes scholarly achievements without the barriers of separate majors. Today it remains an active chapter committed to involving its members in meaningful activities to enrich their academic experience.
UB Chapter Mission
Our mission is to recognize and encourage scholastic achievement and excellence in all undergraduate fields of study, to promote fellowship among its members and other students, to provide educational events and opportunities, and to foster communication among faculty, administrators (especially honorary members) and students on campus. The focus of the chapter shall be to provide voluntary service events and opportunities for its members and other members of the UB community. In all that it does, the chapter shall strive to establish high visibility and a positive image on campus and beyond, and to achieve regional and international distinction within the Society for its accomplishments.
