A message from Chapter President: Dr. JoAnn S. Oliver
Welcome to Epsilon Omega Chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International.
Epsilon Omega Chapter has been issued a call by the current Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) President, Dr. Cathy Catrambone. The presidential call to action is Influence to Advance Global Health and Nursing. I am excited to be leading our local chapter which has a long history of influencing the University of Alabama, Capstone College of Nursing and our surrounding communities. Our vision is to continue to work with our members, our community, and increase inclusiveness and diversity. We are devoted to upholding STTI Honor Society's mission of advancing world health and celebrating nursing excellence in scholarship, leadership, and service.
Let me once again extend a warm welcome to the Epsilon Omega Chapter of STTI. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events. We regularly update this website to keep you informed of events and please follow us on Instagram at STTI_EpsilonOmegaChapter. We look forward to your support and opportunities to work with you in implementing the call and mission of STTI.

Founder's Day Celebration! On Wednesday, October 18, our chapter celebrated Founder's Day with a hosted reception. Dr. Tony Forrester from Rutgers University, and a faculty advisor for Sigma's Nursing Faculty Leadership Academy, shared the history of Sigma and why we celebrate Founder's Day.
