Alpha Epsilon Lambda


Alpha Epsilon Lambda, National Honor Society of Graduate and Professional School Students,  was founded in 1990 by John Capece, Carole Glover, and Suresh Ramamurthi, all former officers of the National Association of Graduate-Professional Students, with the specific objective of recognizing the academic and leadership accomplishments of graduate and professional school students. The mission of Alpha Epsilon Lambda is to:

  • confer distinction for high achievement,
  • promote leadership development,
  • promote scholarship and encourage intellectual development – illustrated by being in the top 35% of your specific discipline,
  • enrich the intellectual environment of graduate education institutions, and
  • encourage high standards of ethical behavior.
Alpha Epsilon Lambda chapters may be installed in graduate or professional schools which support this mission. Graduate and professional school students who meet the selection criteria may be elected to membership. You may find out more about AEL on their website:
