Sigma Lambda Chi

International Construction Honor Society

The fundamental purpose of Sigma Lambda Chi is to provide recognition to outstanding students in construction curricula. Sigma Lambda Chi is the society that offers students the opportunity to be recognized locally and internationally for their academic accomplishments as a construction major.

Aside from the fundamental purpose, Sigma Lambda Chi has three objectives:

  • The first is to render service to the major field of study. This is accomplished by active student participation in tasks and events that affect the construction program that houses the local Sigma Lambda Chi chapter.
  • The second objective is to develop good relations among campus, industry, and the public. Undertaking projects which further this purpose is expected of members of Sigma Lambda Chi.
  • The third objective is to recognize outstanding professional individuals in construction. Sigma Lambda Chi has honorary membership classifications that can be bestowed upon individuals who deserve special recognition because of their contribution to construction education or some facet of the construction industry.

The University of Alaska Anchorage is home to the Alpha V Chapter of the Sigma Lambda Chi International Construction Honor Society. The entire society consists of 73 chapters worldwide. Students are inducted yearly into this honor society and must meet the following criteria: “Undergraduate students shall have completed the equivalent of two academic years of study toward their degree, shall have done resident study at the present institution for the preceding six months, and shall have an overall scholastic average in the upper 20 percent of qualified students in their program.”
