Delta Epsilon Iota
Delta Epsilon Iota (DEI) is the bridge between outstanding students and Career Services.
DEI’s mission is to educate members about career development, encourage
academic excellence, and promote the principles of dedication, enthusiasm,
and initiative in all aspects of campus life. Over the years, the Society
has embraced these values and is now one of the leading academic honor
societies serving higher education.
DEI provides students from all majors the opportunity to network with
employers and each other through career development, community service
and social activities. Members of the DEI chapter at the University of Nebraska at Omaha
regularly participate in professional development events and meetings.
In addition, members are encouraged to become active in the community
and on campus by volunteering.
