Phi Kappa Phi to Establish Chapters at Three Institutions

Phi Kappa Phi has announced approval of three new chapters to be established at institutions across the nation.

The three institutions granted a charter for a chapter of Phi Kappa Phi include Long Island University, Nova Southeastern University and United States Air Force Academy.

Once installed, these chapters will join more than 300 Phi Kappa Phi chapters in the United States and the Philippines. The Society currently inducts approximately 30,000 new members each year on its chapter campuses.

“We are pleased to welcome these three institutions to the Phi Kappa Phi community,” said Society Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd. “The grant of a charter is a mark of excellence for an institution. We look forward to installing these new chapters so they can begin recognizing their best students with invitations to membership.”

The Society’s board of directors approved the institutions’ petitions to establish a chapter of Phi Kappa Phi based on select criteria. Approved institutions must be a regionally accredited four-year college or university with an established reputation of excellence and an expressed commitment to upholding the values of the Society.

Apply for the Student Vice President Leadership Summit by May 15

Phi Kappa Phi is currently accepting applications for its 2017 Student Vice President Leadership Summit. The Summit will be held July 13-16 in Denver, Colorado.

Now in its third year, the two-day event will bring together student vice presidents from Phi Kappa Phi chapters across the country to engage in activities aimed at bolstering leadership development skills. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with other student vice presidents and learn strategies for enhancing Phi Kappa Phi chapters.

“Being able to network with other student vice presidents from across the country and understanding that we are all going through common things within our chapter was valuable,” said Charlene Gallagher, a previous attendee. “I really feel like the seminars made a huge impact on the way that I view and understand leadership.”

The deadline to apply for the event is May 15, 2017. Nominations will be limited to one student vice president per Phi Kappa Phi chapter.

To be eligible to attend, students must be an active member of Phi Kappa Phi and currently serve as a student vice president within their chapter. Members must also be returning to campus as a full-time student for the full 2017-2018 academic year.

Established in 2013 and hosted every other year, the Student Vice President Leadership Summit was developed to engage Phi Kappa Phi’s student vice presidents in personal and organizational development. Since its creation, more than 125 students have attended the event.
