2018 ASLHS Vice President Shelley Hintz

Shelley Hintz is excited about the opportunity to participate with Alpha Sigma Lambda Honor Society at the national level as the Vice-President.

Ms. Hintz is the Director of Academic Support and Retention and an adjunct instructor at the University of Maryland University College (UMUC).  In this role, she focuses on helping students achieve their educational goals, which includes developing tutoring services, recognition programs, and engagement activities for the university’s adult student population.

Shelly has been the chapter councilor for the Tau Chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda for almost ten years, and also serves as an officer for two other honor societies at the university.

In the role of chapter councilor, Ms. Hintz has focused on increasing engagement and providing more opportunities for the membership.  Ms. Hintz developed an online induction ceremony which allows all members to attend or watch, regardless of location. She developed and maintains the Tau Chapter website and also manages the chapter scholarship. She helps Alpha Sigma Lambda members gain valuable experience through volunteering as UMUC mentors and peer tutors.  As a board member at the national level, Ms. Hintz would be interested in exploring new ways to recognize and showcase Alpha Sigma Lambda members and their achievements.

Ms. Hintz received her Master’s of Arts in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies and her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland-College Park. She has been an active member of the Mid-Atlantic Region of UPCEA, serving on the conference planning and awards committees. She also has been involved in the development of the Maryland College Learning Center Association (MDCLCA).

Creighton University – Nu Tau Epsilon Chapter

2017 induction into Nu Tau Epsilon, Creighton University’s chapter of Alpha Sigma Lambda was held on November 16, 2017. We try to make this student-oriented, so our Master of Ceremonies, John Rumbaugh,  was a 2015 inductee and one of our new inductees, Heidi Knofczynski, did a beautiful student reflection.  The Provost of Creighton University, Dr. Thomas Murray gave a warm welcome. As Chapter Councilor, I read each new inductee’s Biographical Sketch and thank you, while they stood between our Provost and our Dean to take a picture.

Dr. Heather Fryer, the Director of our American Studies Program, was our keynote speaker, delivering a presentation on St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit order, who was once a non-traditional student. It was entitled, “Iggy the Man.”  We concluded the formal program with a closing reflection from Fr. Andy Alexander. We then had a reception for inductees and their friends and family and past inductees, providing them with appetizers and drinks.

Alpha Sigma Lambda Recognizes Adult Learners and Their Families

During the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA) annual conference in St. Louis, the week of October 9, 2017, I was wandering the vendor exhibits when I came upon the Alpha Sigma Lambda (ASL) booth. A woman was chatting with one of the representatives from the honor society, and I was reminded of my inquiry into ASL some ten years ago. I wanted to share my enthusiasm for ASL, so I asked if I could put my “two cents” in. Below is the gist of my “two cents.”

I established the Pi Zeta chapter of ASL at Western Connecticut State University in May 2007, not only to honor high-achieving adult learners but also to recognize their families.

As those of us who have been, or who have worked with, adult learners know, jugging higher education along with other adult responsibilities can be challenging, at best.

Without the support of friends and family, that “juggling act” can be even more stressful. As a former adult learner, myself, I recall those challenges, and establishing a chapter of ASL was one small way in which I could “give back” to the adult learner community.

While our universities and colleges may offer membership to several honor societies, ASL stands out for the adult learner population, bringing these high-achieving students and their families together, as a community, in celebration and recognition.
