Welcome to The Ohio State Chapter of Sigma Xi

You may already be familiar with, or even be a member of, Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Honor Society that counts over 45,000 members.  Sigma Xi is an international, multidisciplinary community of science and engineering professionals dedicated to research excellence, to promoting public engagement with science, and to fostering the next generation of researchers. Our Ohio State Chapter was chartered in 1898 as the eighth chapter of Sigma Xi and we have been active ever since. Over this time Sigma Xi has been an important part of the research community at OSU and we still provide multiple opportunities to enrich the research environment for faculty and students. Please see our Events tab for more information about activities and opportunities available to you through your Sigma Xi membership.
