Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society

Phi Theta Kappa's mission

Phi Theta Kappa's mission is two-fold: 1) recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students and (2) provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming.


Phi Theta Kappa traces its beginnings to a Society that originated with six charter members under the name of Kappa Phi Omicron at Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri, in 1910. Today, Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 1.5 million members and 1,200 chapters located in the 50 United States, various U.S. territories, Canada, Japan, and Germany. Founders modeled many aspects of the new Society after the prestigious senior college honorary society, Phi Beta Kappa.
