TUSCALOOSA, AL – Lauren Chambliss of Prattville, AL, was inducted into The University of Alabama’s Anderson Society during the virtual Tapping on the Mound ceremony on April 10.
The Anderson Society is a leadership honorary that recognizes students who have made significant contributions to The University of Alabama. Twenty-four students are accepted each year, and seven honorary memberships are awarded to faculty and graduating seniors.
While these contributions often take many forms, there are certain qualities of members of the Anderson Society that are prominently and ubiquitously found — an immersion into some sort of community service, passion for improving the university community through both explicit and implicit means, and persistent effort to attain excellence in some sphere of university life.
Once an Anderson initiate, members are expected to continue to devote themselves to service, some directly under the auspices of the Anderson Society, but much more individually.
The University of Alabama, the state’s oldest and largest public institution of higher education, is a student-centered research university that draws the best and brightest to an academic community committed to providing a premier undergraduate and graduate education. UA is dedicated to achieving excellence in scholarship, collaboration and intellectual engagement; providing public outreach and service to the state of Alabama and the nation; and nurturing a campus environment that fosters collegiality, respect and inclusivity.
