Alpha Iota Mu is the National Honor Society for Information Systems, founded in 1995 and sponsored by the Association of Information Systems, Special Interest Group: the International Academy for Information Management. In the year 2000, Georgia Southern University became the fourth university to form a chapter that honors students who have achieved a level of distinction within the Information Systems major. Other universities with AIM chapters include Indiana State, South Alabama, John Hopkins, George Washington, Quinnipiac, Robert Morris, Tampa, Central Florida and Appalachian State.
