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:
Greetings, Chapter Members.
The SLC, Int'l office has been busy this summer. Our long time office manager, Sharyn Switzer, retired in April. Her part time assistant, Kimberly Switzer has stepped into the office manager position effective April 1st. Kimberly has a BA from Purdue University. She majored in psychology with a minor in business. Mrs. Switzer has been married to Andy, a professional civil engineer, for 17 years and they have 7 children. Kimberly is looking forward to learning more about the SLC community and meeting its many members, faculty advisors and supporters.
In addition to our staff changes, we have also relocated our International office to southern Lafayette. We are still located in Indiana, near Purdue University. Our address remains the same PO BOX 6383, Lafayette, IN 47903, but PLEASE NOTE, that our phone number has changed to 765-471-1749.
Just a reminder....our SLC office is a part time office and the hours may vary, but rest assured, we are here to help and will return your phone/email messages as quickly as possible!
It's official......We took a headcount and were thrilled to find out that since our first chapter was established in 1949, that we now claim 21,569 members! With 561 new members inducted during the 2015-2016 school year! Congratulations to our new members and welcome to the SLC community!
In other exciting news.....We are making what we hope to be great changes in how we process our new members. We anticipate that these changes will lead to a smooth and more efficient way for our faculty advisors/OIC's to invite, process and induct our new members.
First, we plan to now offer ONLINE PAYMENTS for our new members when they register. Second, we are going to change our registration guidelines and deadlines so that new members will receive their new member items during their induction ceremony. And lastly, we will be updating our Membership booklet to allow more information to be online.
New Item.....Starting with the new class of inductees this fall, we will be including a SLC hard hat sticker in the new member item package. We hope that you will PROUDLY display this sticker on your hard hat while you are at work or involved in a community service project.
We've added a couple of web pages to this website for more resources to be available to you. And we continue to update information, the listing of individual Sigma Lambda Chi members, merchandise information, and general news. And, don't forget to check-out this new ACHS Video on this web page that briefly highlights the benefits of belonging to an Honor Society.
We hope all of you are having a great break, or summer project, co-op, or internship. We look forward to the new academic year that is quickly approaching and hearing from our chapters and all that they have accomplished this summer!
Best wishes for a great new semester!
Sigma Lambda Chi International Office
New Item.....Starting with the new class of inductees FALL 2016, we will be including a SLC hard hat sticker in the new member item package. We hope that you will PROUDLY display this sticker on your hard hat while you are at work or involved in a community service project.
