Pi Omega Pi is the National Business Education Teacher Honor Society, which has the purpose of promoting scholarship and service in the area of business education. The Society was founded in 1923 at the Northeast Missouri State Teachers College. The University at Albany Beta Eta chapter was chartered in 1942 when the school was named the New York State College for Teachers. Dr. Edward Cooper, professor of business, established the Beta Eta chapter and served as its faculty sponsor for fifteen years. Most of the chapter's activities involved community and social functions, encouraging students in the field of teaching business subjects, as well as contributing to the national organization as a whole.

The Pi Omega Pi, Beta Eta Chapter Records include the 1942 charter for the organization, though the bulk of records document the chapter’s activity from the 1960s through the 1980s. This activity is reflected in administrative documents such as meeting minutes and a treasury book, as well as the organization’s social functions which are documented through banquet and initiation programs and scrapbooks. There also are files about a memorial scholarship established to honor Dr. Edward Cooper at the university. Other records in the collection reflect the society at the national level through the inclusion of such items as a national organizational history, newsletters, constitution and brochures.

The collection is organized into the following series:

Series 1 is arranged alphabetically while Series 2 is arranged chronologically.
