Honor Society - Sigma Iota Rho

Sigma Iota Rho Crest

The Loyola University Maryland Delta Sigma Chapter of Sigma Iota Rho, a nationally recognized International Relations and Global Studies Honor Society, inducted it first class in the Spring of 2012. Sigma Iota Rho aims to promote and reward scholarship and service among students and practitioners of international and global studies and to foster integrity and creative performance in the conduct of world affairs.

The Greek letters stand for the following Greek words:

Sigma - Σ "synesi," meaning Prudence;
Iota - Ι "ideosi," meaning Ideals; and
Rho - R "romi," meaning Power.

These three qualities are essential for the conduct of successful foreign policy and signify some of the most important values studied by those in the field.
