Nominations Open for Golden Chain Honor Society

Posted on January 29, 2024

Amanda Wils and Allison Sermarini hold up their certificates for the UNCG Golden Chain Honor Society.

Faculty and staff are invited to nominate outstanding juniors and seniors for UNCG’s Golden Chain Honor Society, which was organized in 1948 to recognize students who have made significant and meaningful contributions to the university community.

Nominations are due before midnight on March 15.

“Golden” denotes excellence and rarity, and “Chain” signifies linkage – a binding together of past generations of students who served the University with students of today and those generations yet to come. The organization is unique to the UNC Greensboro campus. Members embody the characteristics of leadership, scholarship, service, tolerance, judgement, magnanimity, and character.

Golden Chain is now accepting applications for Spring 2024 inductions. Candidates must be juniors or seniors with a minimum 3.25 GPA. The nomination form can be found here.

Nominations may be submitted by faculty, staff, Golden Chain alumni, and honorary members. Please contact Meredith Atchison at with any questions.
