Dobro Slovo is the national Slavic Honor Society, represented at the University of Denver by the Beta Zeta chapter, one of the original charters of the Society. Dobro Slovo recognizes achievement in the study of Russian language, literature, and culture in undergraduate studies at DU. Each year, usually in the spring, there is a special Dobro Slovo event: the annual induction ceremony. The event, a serious recognition of achievement in Slavic Studies, also doubles as a year-end celebration after months of dedicated studying of Russian.
During the rest of the year, events are coordinated with the Russian Student Union, which is the undergraduate students' Russian organization. These activities, which occur regularly throughout the year, are interesting, inexpensive, and fun, whether you're a student of Russian, or a member of the Russian-speaking community here in Denver, or simply interested in Russia and things Russian.
Dobro Slovo is one of the oldest American honor societies dedicated to the study of a language
and a culture. Induction in the society is an honor and distinction that many students
and faculty wear with pride. Applications are normally requested in early April. Usually,
every year, the Beta Zeta chapter also recognizes an Honorary Inductee from the Denver
community for contributions to the study of Slavic languages and cultures. Please
feel free to nominate possible Honorary Inductees at any time by contacting the Russian
Language and Literature Program's webmaster.
