  • Kappa Mu Epsilon

Kappa Mu Epsilon, or KME for short, is the mathematics honor society at RWU. 

Kappa Mu Epsilon is a national mathematics honor society, promoting interest in mathematics among undergraduate students. Its chapters are located in colleges and universities of recognized standing which offer a strong mathematics major. The chapters' members are selected from students of mathematics and other closely related fields who have maintained standards of scholarship, have professional merit, and have attained academic distinction.

Besides being a great honor, a KME membership also looks great on a resume or graduate school applications. To meet the requirements of a qualified undergraduate KME member, a student must

  • be a regularly enrolled student at an institution where a Kappa Mu Epsilon chapter is installed;
  • have completed at least three semesters (or five quarters) of the college course and rank in the upper 35% of his/her class;
  • have completed at least three college courses in mathematics including at least one semester (or two quarters) of calculus and attained an average of B or better in all mathematics courses;
  • have completed at least one semester (one quarter) at the institution, if having transferred from another institution, and have completed at least one mathematics course with a B or better at the institution prior to initiation into membership.

If you think you are eligible and would like to be a part of KME, contact the faculty sponsor Dr. Robert Jacobson. or visit KME on OrgSync.
