Imhotep Society

In 1980, the SGAEC established the Imhotep Society, a campus organization to recognize students who, because of their service and leadership, have significantly contributed to student life on this campus. It recognizes that many student leaders, in performing their functions and assignments, may have sacrificed high academic accomplishment and thusly did not receive recognition through those organizations that traditionally honor students for high academic and clinical achievement. The society was named after the ancient Egyptian god of medicine – Imhotep.

Each college student government; council has developed a system that awards value points for leadership and service involvement for members of their college. An accumulation of value points can result in nomination to the Society.

While the principal objective of the society is to reward and recognize student leadership on campus, a secondary goal is to inspire students to continue leadership and service roles as alumni of the university.

Additionally, the SGAEC may select a staff or faculty member to receive the Imhotep award for service to the student community.
