On November 7, the Lambda Kappa Chapter of Delta Mu Delta was installed atWebster University.
Normally we would include the location of the university in that first descriptive sentence - the 'where' of five "w"s that should be in the first paragraph of every news story. With Webster University, that takes an entire explanation!
So where isWebster University? You could say (a) it exists in over 100 locations in 20 states, the District of Columbia and six countries on three continents; or (b) you could say, like they do, that their ivy covered campus is anchored in St. Louis, Missouri, but their reach is worldwide; or (c) you could say thatWebster is everywhere someone wants to learn, since the university offers online programs. So, we could start again: On November 7, the Lambda Kappa Chapter of DMD was installed atWebster University's anchor location in St. Louis, Missouri. The installation was attended by many of our Board of Directors including President Dr. Mike LaRocco, who welcomed Webster University, and Vice President Extension and Development, Dr. Charles Fazzi, who presented the charter to Prof. Bud Bellomo,Webster Headquarters Worldwide Faculty Adviser. Also in attendance was Dr. John Lewington, regional representative for the Midwestern region which includes St. Louis, Dr. Janis Petronis, past president and regional representative for our international region, and Richard L. Sosnowski, executive director and secretary, along with several other officers and regional reps.
At the time the chapter was installed, they inducted six honorary members, who represented their most outstanding students. There were two each from the undergraduate, graduate and doctorate classes who graduated prior to the chapter's installation date.
A seventh honorary members (by Board exception, as a surprise) was Dr. Sebastion, (Bud) Bellomo, Special Projects Coordinator on the executive staff of the Dean of the School of Business and Technology. Bud's patience and persistence as HQ Faculty Adviser continues to be critical in surmounting the challenges covering the myriad of details it takes to bring such a large, diverse school into membership with DMD.
Dr. Benjamin Akande, Dean of the School of Business and Technology voices the prideWebster has in achieving membership in DMD. "This is a tremendous opportunity for our highest-achieving students to join this prestigious honor society. Delta Mu Delta is offered only to business schools and colleges that have attained ACBSP accreditation. For its members, Delta Mu Delta provides the highest international recognition a business student can earn. Not only is membership a resume-builder; it's recognition that lasts a lifetime," says Dr. Akande. It can't be said much better than that.
Webster's Spring installation of some 27 co-chapters,covering more than 34 of their locations, took place this May.
