Elon’s chapter of the national honor society has inducted faculty, staff, graduate students and undergraduate students into the society in absentia.
The Elon University Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi has welcomed its newest initiates, selected for membership from the upper 7.5 percent of the junior class and upper 10 percent of the senior and graduate classes.
The new members were inducted in absentia due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The inductees will receive their certificates and pins in an alternate manner.
Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and largest multidisciplinary academic honor society whose mission is “to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others.”
Since its founding, more than 1 million members have been initiated in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Philippines.
Elon’s chapter of Phi Kappa Phi was installed on Nov. 14, 1995, as Chapter 275. The first class of inductees included 79 students and three faculty members.
