Founded in 1918, Mortar Board is a national collegiate membership group dedicated to scholarship, leadership and service.

Members must be juniors with a B grade point average and in the upper 35% of their class. Members must have demonstrated leadership abilities and must have established a record of service to their university and / or community. Chapters grant scholarships. The MB Forum is published quarterly by the national organization.
