A New Chapter

After a lengthy application process completed in partnership with Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center (DHMC), Colby-Sawyer now has its own chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI), the honor society of nursing dedicated to advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership and service.

An induction and official chartering ceremony for the Psi Sigma Chapter, the organization’s 544th, took place in Wheeler Hall on Monday, April 10. For the first time, Colby-Sawyer will send delegates to the biennial STTI convention in Indianapolis from Oct. 28 through Nov. 1, 2017.

“This is yet another example of the quality of our nursing programs as well as the value of our partnership with DHMC,” said Dr. Susan Reeves ’88, dean of the Colby-Sawyer College School of Nursing and Health Professions and Gladys A. Burrows Distinguished Professor of Nursing.
