The Elliott Society is named in honor of the late Carl Atwood Elliott, a former Alabama congressman in the U.S. House of Representatives basing his political principles on assistance to the needy, racial tolerance, and better educational opportunities to all. The University of Alabama Carl A. Elliott Society recognizes students, faculty, and alumni who have made significant leadership contributions to the campus, community, state, and nation in the areas of social and cultural progress and who portray a spirit of the ideals held by Congressman Elliott.

The alpha chapter was founded in December of 1992 at the University of Alabama, located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It has since remained an active service honorary with membership residing in the University of Alabama Coordinating Council for Honor Societies (CCHS) as well as the University of Alabama Coordinating Council for Student Organizations (CCSO). Advisory sponsorship has been provided by the University of Alabama Office of Community Service and Volunteerism (OCSV).
