Communities

New Feature: Professional Collaboration Communities

An exciting opportunity for members to meet and interact online, regardless of their location, for professional collaboration and peer support. 

Active Sigma Xi members can participate in a general member community. They will be able to create a user profile and search for other members based on location, institution, or expertise.

Chapter officers will be included in a community designed exclusively for chapter leadership—to collaborate, exchange ideas, and ask questions. Chapters will have their own communities to facilitate conversations between chapter members. 

What’s Your Question?

Help start the conversation by posing a question to your peers at our new collaboration communities portal.
