Alpha Iota Delta is the International Honor Society in the Decision, Information, and Operational Sciences 

 

In 1971, a group of members of the Decision Sciences Institute and other professional organizations formed Alpha Iota Delta, the national honor society in decision, information, and operational sciences. The purposes of the honor society are threefold:

  • to confer distinction to students in the decision, information, and operational sciences 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, information, and operational sciences 
  • to promote interest in the disciplines of decision, information, and operational  sciences

Alpha Iota Delta continues to be linked to the Decision Sciences Institute and other professional organizations and supports those activities of the professional organizations, 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.
