DEMONSTRATIONS BROUGHT TO CAMPUS Recent gifts totaling $135,000 from Alcoa and the Alcoa Foundation have funded several initiatives for students, including this safety demonstration and a fatality conference for safety professionals.
The Department of Safety Sciences has had a student section of
the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) for more than 20 years and has won the
Outstanding ASSE Student Section five times. All
students are encouraged to participate, and about 100 students
currently are involved.
The Alpha Chapter of Rho Sigma Kappa was
inaugurated at IUP in 1993. This honor society recognizes exemplary performance in the
safety sciences. Graduate student membership is based on nomination by program
faculty and requires completion of at least 15 credits in the major and meeting
minimum grade point averages, as well as other evidence of superior performance.
Typically, only 5 to 10 percent of Safety Sciences students qualify
for membership in Rho Sigma Kappa.
Our career fair is widely recognized as one of the crown jewels of the Safety Sciences Department. With our outstanding national reputation, we attract some of the largest employers in many industries who are seeking to hire personnel with safety expertise. We host the Safety Sciences Career Fair in October each year at the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex. All students are invited.
