Chi Alpha Epsilon (XAE) National Honor Society was established to increase the recognition of successful students in academic support programs such as the Arthur O. Eve HEOP.
XAE aims to promote continued high academic standards, to foster increased communication among its members, and to honor academic excellence achieved by those students. The mission of XAE is not just to promote academic excellence in its members but also for members to promote and foster excellence in others. This is accomplished through mentoring and various community service initiatives.
NYIT's chartering ceremony occurred in 2011. Since then, XAE has maintained an active presence on NYIT's Manhattan campus. The group regularly participates in community service activities, fundraising walks, and collection drives.
