Phi Kappa Phi Chapter Recognized for Excellence

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi
recently recognized the Truman chapter as a Chapter of Excellence, the highest distinction a chapter can receive from the organization.

The award is given to chapters that excel in recognizing and promoting academic excellence in all fields of higher education and engaging the community of scholars in service to others. The Chapter of Excellence distinction is a part of the society’s chapter recognition program, which acknowledged 53 chapters with recognition this year, including 29 as a Chapter of Excellence.

By receiving the Chapter of Excellence distinction, the chapter is recognized as a thriving organization that meets regularly, holds annual initiations and applies frequently for Phi Kappa Phi’s select awards, grants and fellowships.

Chapters achieving the Chapter of Excellence award receive a commendation letter from the society sent to chapter officers and campus administration, special recognition on the society’s website, in publications and at the biennial convention, specially designed logo for use in chapter communications, recognition advertisements in local media and a $500 award.

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. The society has chapters on more than 300 select colleges and universities in North America and the Philippines.
