Sigma Chi Eta

Communication Honor Society

Sigma Chi Eta

Sigma Chi Eta is the official community college honor society of the National Communication Association (NCA). Every year, Sigma Chi Eta inducts and rewards new outstanding Communication students while exploring options for community college students to transfer to four-year colleges or universities or enter the workforce. Once inducted, a student is a member for life and is expected to always strive for excellence. 

The Alpha Beta chapter of Sigma Chi Eta has an active student membership in the Communication Department at Santa Barbara City College and is led by a team of elected student officers under the leadership of the Faculty Adviser. Alpha Beta chapter works to develop events and opportunities that motivate, inform, and inspire Communication students. We also have the goal of stimulating our members to incorporate their Communication skills to positively impact our local community on campus at SBCC, the larger Santa Barbara city region and beyond. One major area of focus for the Alpha Beta chapter is service learning where students are given opportunities to apply what they are learning in the field of Communication to solve real world problems. As our mission reflects, we are committed to empowering our student members to become socially-conscious leaders who care about the needs of others and who can express themselves with both passion and civility.
