Iota Tau Alpha is a nationally recognized athletic training student honor society in which athletic training majors with a minimum 3.0 GPA in athletic training courses are eligible for induction. In December of 2008 the Mercyhurst university chapter of Iota Tau Alpha was founded and officially recognized by the National Athletic Training Association.

The focus of Iota Tau Alpha is to engage athletic training majors in the profession of athletic training beyond the classroom. Special emphasis is placed on promoting the profession of athletic training and attending local, state and national clinical symposia and conferences.
