Iota Iota Iota (Triota) is a national Women's Studies Honor Society with over 50 chapters nationwide. The Alpha Chapter of Triota at Metropolitan State University of Denver held its first induction ceremony in the fall of 1992. Since then, Triota chapters have formed across the country to recognize the achievements of students in Women’s and Gender Studies, as well as to encourage diversity, egalitarianism, and a supportive academic environment for all students.
Established in the fall of 2015, UNI’s Triota chapter holds meetings on a monthly basis, allowing students an opportunity to discuss topics related to Women’s and Gender Studies in a setting that is both social and academic. UNI’s Triota chapter held its first induction ceremony for new members on November 30th, 2015. Membership is open to undergraduate minors, graduate M.A., and certificate students in Women’s and Gender Studies, or any UNI student with a strong interest in Women’s and Gender Studies. To join, undergraduate students must have achieved third semester standing with at least 6 hours of Women’s and Gender Studies courses with a GPA of at least 3.0. Graduate students must have completed at least 3 hours of Women’s and Gender Studies courses with a GPA of at least 3.0.
