“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 Rho Chi Society will achieve universal recognition of its members as lifelong intellectual leaders in pharmacy. As a community of scholars, the Society will instill the desire to pursue intellectual excellence and critical inquiry to advance the profession.
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.
