PGM Mission Statement
The mission of Pi Gamma Mu is to encourage and promote excellence in the social sciences
        and to uphold the ideals of scholarship and service.

Any person of good moral character may be invited or may petition to join an active chapter of Pi Gamma Mu when he/she is a junior, senior, or graduate student; is in the upper 35 percent of the class; has at least 20 semester hours of social science; and has a grade average of B or better.  

Here is a complete worksheet to calculate your eligibility for joining PGM.
Every year since 1979, Nebraska Delta at WSC has been awarded membership on the PGM National Roll of Distinction as one of the most active chapters in the country.

Consider joining and participating in Pi Gamma Mu if you are invited.  Membership in PGM is also a distinction you will be proud to include on your resume.  The modest initiation fee is well worth the opportunity to participate in WSC campus activities and national conventions. 

PGM presents the Wayne Public Library with a Service Learning grant check to be used for replacing their Dr. Seuss collection of books.   (l-r) PGM faculty co-advisor Dr. Randy Bertolas, WPL Children's Librarian Julie Osnes, PGM Vice-president Lisa Nelson, and PGM faculty co-advisor Dr. Jean Karlen.
