About Triota

Iota Iota Iota


Iota Iota Iota is the academic honor society for the field of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Iota Iota Iota is named for the ancient goddesses, Inanna, Isthar, and Isis. The purpose of the organization is to encourage and support scholarship and excellence in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Grand Valley State University.

Triota strives to maintain feminist values central to Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies: egalitarianism, inclusiveness, and the celebration of the diversity of gendered experiences. The organization also works to enhance the experience of students in Women and Gender Studies as well as recognizing their academic achievements. 


Students who have completed at least six credit hours in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies coursework and have a GPA of 3.0 or above in WGS courses are eligible for active membership.

Both active and associate members are eligible to wear an honor cord at graduation. Only active members may hold office, vote, preside, officiate, or solicit funds on behalf of the organization. The cost is $35.00 for induction and lifetime membership.


Faculty and staff interested in furthering the purpose of Iota Iota Iota are eligible to be associate members.
