IEEE-HKN Pivots to Online Programming and Resources to Support Members and Chapters

As closures, quarantines, and online university classes became the norm, IEEE-HKN quickly delivered resources for its Chapters ensuring those who earned membership into HKN could still take part in the Honor Society’s rituals and events even though they may not be able to meet in-person.

A page was added to the IEEE-HKN website to update members on resources, recommendations and virtual options for Chapter operations and member experiences. Resources include a Remote Induction Ceremony that holds fast to the Induction Ritual that has been in use since 1904.

A tutoring initiative and ideas for community service and social event opportunities are helping Chapter members stay connected with one another and their communities. The worldwide IEEE-HKN Tetris Tournament has proven quite successful in bringing the global HKN community together; as has a series of web-based workshops led by industry and academic leaders that are free and open to all HKN members worldwide.

HKN will hold an Online Graduation Celebration honoring the members of the Class of 2020, many of whom will not have on-campus Commencement Ceremonies. All graduating seniors and their families will be invited to participate in the ceremony on 30 May, which will feature a Commencement Address from Dr. Henry Samueli, an HKN Eminent Member and Chairman of Broadcom Inc.

These are unprecedented times, and HKN is proud to be helping by delivering on its core ideals of Scholarship, Character and Attitude.
