The Maia Chapter accepts applications and nominations for new members only once per year. Prospective members should apply (or be nominated) their junior year.
Requirements to be considered for membership:
- Cumulative Grade Point Average of 3.00 or above
- Completed 90 credit hours by the end of upcoming summer semester (2021)
- Must be graduating the following December 2021 or later (not this spring)
- A history of involvement and leadership
Being a member of Mortar Board means helping with flower sales at UNM spring and fall graduation ceremonies, putting on Hanging of the Greens (a holiday tradition at UNM including luminarias and caroling), and attending regular meetings. Participation in some events is required. Expect to be involved with the Mortar Board national philanthropy “Reading is Leading” and have the opportunity to join in local and campus community service. None of these events take a lot of time, but we really expect you to participate. The benefits include new friendships, leadership development, and fun, as well as the honor of membership.
