“In the recognition by the academic world of Rho Chi as an honor society there is an implicit recognition of the high level of academic integrity enjoyed by colleges of pharmacy and the unimpeachable reputation of pharmacy as a science.”
– Bowers and Cowen
The mission of the Society is to encourage and recognize excellence in intellectual achievement and foster fellowship among its members. Further, the Society encourages high standards of conduct and character, and advocates critical inquiry in all aspects of pharmacy.
The fundamental objective of Rho Chi has always been to promote the advancement of the pharmaceutical sciences through the encouragement and recognition of sound scholarships. High standards of intellectual and scholarly attainments are demanded for election to membership. Such election, symbolized by the award of the Rho Chi key, supplies a unique scholarship incentive.
