Triota (Iota Iota Iota) is a national academic and service-based Women’s and Gender Studies honor society. The Greek letter, Iota, was selected to represent the three goddesses Inanna, Ishtar, and Isis. Triota strives to maintain the feminist values to encourage diversity, egalitarianism, and a supportive academic environments for all students.
Triota members meet approximately once a month to discuss contemporary events and issues pertaining to WGST majors and minors. Meetings are open to non-members (all WGST students are invited to come).
Triota members have the right to wear signature (lilac and white) Triota honor cords and/or membership pins at graduation, if they choose to do so. Honor cords and pins will be supplied to all members by the WGST Program.
In order to qualify for regular membership in our Triota chapter, students must:
- Be a WGST major of minor having achieved second semester standing and at least 6 hours of WGST courses, including WGST 200
- Hold an overall GPR of 3.0
- Hold a WGST GPR (WGST and WGST cross-listed courses) of 3.2
All who meet approved academic criteria are invited to become members of this Women’s Studies academic society without regard to gender, race, ethnicity, religion, differing abilities, economic class, or sexual/gender identities.
