Twenty-six former UBC student leaders have been inducted
into Sigma Tau Chi, UBC’s honour society.
Inductees include former Alma Mater Society executive, student
members of Senate, Faculty of Science ambassadors, residence
life advisors, founders of Downtown Eastside learning experiences,
and leaders of varsity sports teams.
Founded in 1943, the organization has about 500 members.
Although dormant for the last decade, Sigma Tau Chi has been
rejuvenated to again recognize and honour exceptional student
leaders and to connect new generations of student leaders
with their predecessors.
Those involved in the revival of Sigma Tau Chi include Martin
Ertl (BSc 1993 ); Doug Aldridge (BASc 1974); Mr. Justice Grant
Burnyeat (LL.B. 1973) and Gary Moore (BCom 1976, MBA 1982).
The Greek letters that are the society’s name form
an acronym that in English means “To you, the sword.”
The society’s emblem is a sword bearing the letters
Sigma Tau Chi.
