Kappa Alpha Omicron

Kappa Alpha Omicron is the Student Chapters and Honors Society for the Interdisciplinary Environmental Association. The society's  purpose can be found within the Greek letters that make up its name: Kosmos (universe) Anthropos (humanity) and Oikos (household). We believe these three perspectives can be used to approach our biggest environmental challenges. KAO is designed to offer college and university students and faculty academic support and a web of networks across the globe in the growing field of interdisciplinary environmental sciences. A chapter will receive reduced conference registration costs for students and advisor, cords of accreditation upon graduating, access to the Interdisciplinary Environmental Review (IER) upon attending an IICE and publication opportunity for undergrad and graduate research.
