Keynote Address at Northeastern University Rho Chi Induction
Dean J. Douglas Bricker gave the keynote address at the induction of students from the Beta Tau chapter of the Rho Chi Society at Northeastern University. The Rho Chi Society serves as the only honor society in pharmacy. Bricker has served previously as the Society as its National President, National Secretary, and Regional Councilor for the Society and is currently the National Historian. He gave the inductees his views of their responsibilities as new members and encouraged them to live up to the standards that Rho Chi promotes. The Rho Chi Society, established in 1922, encourages and recognizes excellence in intellectual achievement and advocates critical inquiry in all aspects of pharmacy. The Society further encourages high standards of conduct and character and fosters fellowship among its members. The Society seeks universal recognition of its members as lifelong intellectual leaders in pharmacy, and as a community of scholars, to instill the desire to pursue intellectual excellence and critical inquiry to advance the profession.
