Phi Kappa Phi

Phi Kappa Phi (PKP) is a national honorary organization founded at the University of Maine in 1897. The Society’s 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.” Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines with more than 300 chapters. The society’s name comes from the initial letters of the Greek words forming its adopted motto: Philosophìa Krateìto Photôn, “Let the love of learning rule humanity.”
