The University of Illinois at Springfield is home to the Alpha Nu Tau chapter of Sigma Tau Delta, the international English Honor Society. Sigma Tau Delta’s central purpose is to confer distinction upon students of English language and literature in undergraduate, graduate, and professional studies. Sigma Tau Delta also recognizes the accomplishments of professional writers who have contributed to the fields of language and literature.
