Lambda Pi Eta (LPE) is the official worldwide honor society of the National Communication Association that aims to recognize outstanding undergraduate students in the discipline and continue to foster their interest. As explained by the NCA, “LPE represents what Aristotle described in Rhetoric as three ingredients of persuasion: logos (Lambda), meaning logic; pathos (Pi), relating to emotion; and ethos (Eta), defined as character, credibility and ethics.” Members of the Chi Beta chapter at Mizzou are not only recognized for their academic excellence, but they also build leadership skills while engaging in professional development activities and service to the community. Currently accepting applications for Spring membership (application form in the PDF documents section of this page) due Friday, February 21 at 5:00 pm!
