The Tlacuilo Honor Society (based on the Nahuatl term “tlacuihcuilō tlahcuilō,” which refers to a scribe, writer, or scholar) is a new honors organization on campus with an aim to recognize and promote the achievement of academic excellence and to encourage the leadership of undergraduate Latino students, as well as students who demonstrate an interest and dedication to the Latino culture and community. The Tlacuilo Honor Society also aims to provide community service.
To become a member of the Tlacuilo Honor Society, eligible students will receive letters of invitation. Upon accepting their invitations, these students must fill out the Tlacuilo Honor Society application and have GPAs of 3.25. There is a one-time membership fee of $35, but this fee can be waived through community service if a student is unable to pay it. During membership, these students must maintain their GPAs, and they must attend all business meetings the Society holds during their memberships.
Membership is open to all members of the IUP community without regard to race, lifestyle, color, religious creed, disability, national origin, affectional or sexual orientation, or gender.
