It has been a rewarding few months for HKN! The first IEEE-HKN Student Chapter Support grants have been awarded to Chapters. Funded programs include Chapter-building activities, tutoring initiatives, and alumni engagement events. HKN volunteers and staff have been coaching 18 University Chapters, many of whom are working to revitalize their activities as we emerge from the pandemic. In April, a brand new HKN Chapter was installed at Kennesaw State University in Georgia. Join us in congratulating and welcoming the Nu Epsilon Chapter!
All of this is made possible by the IEEE-HKN Student Chapter Support Fund, launched at the beginning of 2022. This dedicated fund was established to create new and enhance existing resources, training, and programs to help every Chapter thrive. A strong Chapter, in turn, helps ensure that members have a fulfilling HKN experience throughout their entire careers. The two facets of this fund include the IEEE-HKN Student Chapter Support Grant program and a supplemental Chapter coaching initiative, which, as you can see, are well underway.
John McDonald, Beta Chapter, and his wife, Jo-Ann, made the first gift to this dedicated Fund that provided the mechanism to launch the program. Please join them and us in our mission to give every student the chance to be part of a successful Chapter. You can make a contribution here by choosing the Student Chapter Support Fund from the dropdown menu.
