Beta Beta Beta is a National Biology Honor Society for students dedicated to improving the understating and appreciation of biological study through research and teaching. Since its founding in 1922, more than 175,000 persons have been accepted into lifetime membership, and more than 430 chapters have been established throughout the United States and Puerto Rico.

Here at UNC, Tri-Beta is more than just an honor society. Our members have been equally devoted to service both within the department and in the larger community. For information about joining Tri-Beta, please contact the Biology Tri-Beta Faculty Advisor, Dr Cathy Lohmann (
