Alpha Iota Delta is the International Honor Society in the Decision Sciences
and Information Systems
In 1971, a group of members of the Decision Sciences Institute formed Alpha Iota Delta, the national honor society in decision sciences and information systems. The purposes of the honor society are threefold:
- to confer distinction to students in the decision sciences and information systems disciplines for academic excellence
- to promote the infusion of the functional and behavioral areas of business with the tools, concepts, and methodologies of the decision sciences and information systems
- to promote interest in the disciplines of decision sciences and information systems
Alpha Iota Delta continues to be linked to the Decision Sciences Institute and supports those activities of the Decision Sciences Institute, which are aimed at student involvement.
At present, the honor society has fifty-four chapters at Universities all across the United States and Canada, with a total membership in excess of 7000.
