Dr. Laura DeSisto, Program Director for the Master of Liberal Arts program and head of the AGLSP JHU-MLA Chapter, states, “I am extremely proud of the students and alumni who have been selected to join the AGLSP National Honor Society. Through their ongoing scholarship and professional contributions, they will serve as noteworthy ambassadors for the program and will lead conversations about the relevance and enduring value of a liberal arts education for years to come.”
A total of 37 alumni from 67 institutional chapters were inducted into the AGLSP National Honor Society this year. The process is selective, and membership is by invitation only. Johns Hopkins students and alumni with a 3.75 GPA or higher applied to the AGLSP JHU-MLA Chapter for membership consideration. The AGLSP National Honor Society then approved nominees that demonstrated academic excellence, leadership, and active involvement in graduate liberal studies.
The MLA program is an institutional member of the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs and recently established an intuitional chapter of the AGLSP National Honor Society. The AGLSP is committed to providing a forum for the exchange of ideas among graduate liberal studies program directors, faculty, students, alumni, and individuals interested in interdisciplinary graduate education.
