The National Communication Association (NCA) established Lambda Pi Eta as the official communication honor society for undergraduate students in 1994.

The name Lambda Pi Eta represents what Aristotle described in his Rhetoric as the three modes of persuasion: Logos meaning logic; Pathos relating to emotion; and Ethos defined as character credibility and ethics.  Lambda Pi Eta was founded by Dr. Stephen A. Smith in 1985 at the University of Arkansas.  The honor society has been accredited by the Association of College Honor Societies since February 1996.

There are currently over 400 Lambda Pi Eta chapters at private and public universities throughout the country and one international chapter. Curry College's chapter is identified as Lambda Chi.  Each chapter of Lambda Pi Eta, throughout the world, inducts its members with a ceremony similar to our ceremony this evening.
