Golden Key membership reflects a student’s hard work and dedication to success.

The Golden Key induction ceremony kicked off with a welcome from Dr. Amy Kahn, provost at University of the Rockies. Dr. Dianne Lefly, dean of the School of Social, Human, and Educational Development, and Dr. Doug Gilbert, dean of the School of Organizational Leadership, also addressed the Golden Key members and their guests. The new inductees were welcomed into the Honour Society and presented with honor cards.
