Historical Note

According to the April 13, 2010 Convocation for Honors and Phi Beta Kappa Chapter Installation program, "The Phi Beta Kappa Society was founded on December 5, 1776, by five students at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia. The nation's oldest and most prestigious academic honor society, Phi Beta Kappa embraces the principles of freedom of inquiry and liberty of thought and expression. The letters (Phi Beta Kappa) represent the Greek initials of the society's motto, 'Love of learning is the guide of life.' The golden key, signifying Phi Beta Kappa membership, is recognized as a symbol of academic achievement in the liberal arts and sciences. Phi Beta Kappa has established chapters at 280 colleges and universities in the United States, representing only 10 percent of the nation's institutions of higher learning. Each year the top arts and sciences graduates at these institutions are selected for membership. Phi Beta Kappa members demonstrate intellectual integrity, tolerance for alternative viewpoints, and a broad range of academic interests. Seventeen U.S. presidents, 38 U.S. Supreme Court justices, and 136 Nobel laureates are Phi Beta Kappa members. On October 2, 2009, delegates to the Phi Beta Kappa Triennial Council voted to establish a chapter at Elon University. Elon becomes the seventh institution in North Carolina to meet the high standards advocated by Phi Beta Kappa."
