Delta Tau Alpha

ULM’s Agribusiness Program is home to a chapter of the Delta Tau Alpha National Honors Society. Delta Tau Alpha is an honors society for students majoring in agriculture at non-land grant institutions. DTA stands for Dedicated to Agriculture, the organization’s mission is to “recognize scholarship and leadership in agriculture.”

According to the national DTA Organization, “The Honor Society of Delta Tau Alpha (DTA) promotes and recognizes scholarship and leadership accomplishments of agricultural students while emphasizing character development, enhancing undergraduate preparation for professional positions, and joining with other agricultural student’s organizations in the promotion of agriculture.”

Additionally, the national organization also states the purposes of DTA are:

1) To promote and recognize high standards of scholarship, leadership, and character among agricultural students.

2) To encourage and foster high ethical standards of agriculture and professional positions held by agricultural students.

3) To band together a group of outstanding students who by scholastic accomplishment, service, and upholding high character standards have been recognized for these traits and are capable of recognizing these traits in others. 4) To promote the profession of agriculture.

5) To render service and to cooperate with the student bodies and the agricultural divisions of the respective institutions.

ULM’s DTA chapter takes the mission of the national organization to heart. Our members promote agriculture at a variety of events on and off campus. Our chapter is actively involved in many social activities such as tailgating and our annual holiday party. The group often takes trips to attend quiz bowls and the National DTA convention. This is a wonderful organization for the best and brightest students in the Agribusiness program.
