Phi Kappa Phi Mission

"To recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others."

 

In 1897, at the University of Maine, an honors society was created by 10 senior students, two faculty members and the university president. The society, originally named the Lambda Sigma Eta Society, was formed to recognize the academic excellence achieved by the original 10 senior students and students who would later achieve great academic success. The society later adopted its present name using the initial letters of the Greek words forming the motto of the organizations, Philosophia Krateito Photon, "Let the love of learning rule humanity."

Since its founding, Phi Kappa Phi has initiated more than one million members of various academic disciplines. Junior students in the top 7.5 percent and seniors in the top 10 percent of their class are invited to join this highly selective honors society. Each year, approximately 30,000 members are initiated at one of more than 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Philippines.

For more information about the National Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi at Carroll University, contact Dr. Monika Baldridge, Carroll University's PKP president, at mbaldrid@carrollu.edu.
