The Iron Arrow Honor Society, founded in 1926, is a highly selective honor society for students, faculty, staff, and alumni at the University of Miami. Historically, the Society was male-only, founded as the "The Highest Honor Attained by Men". After several years of social and legal pressure, the all-male membership voted to admit women in 1985. Criteria for membership include scholarship, leadership, character, humility, and love of alma mater. Membership in the Society is the highest honor bestowed by the University.
