Phi Kappa Phi
"Rallying Optimism & Resilience" (keynote by Dr. Pat Crist from 2013 Initiation Ceremony)
The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest, and most selective all-discipline honor society. 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."
The Duquesne University Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi was installed on April 26, 1976. Our Chapter number is 187.
Once inducted, Phi Kappa Phi members gain a lifelong passport to a global network of academic and professional opportunities. Since its founding in 1897, more than one million members have been initiated. Some of the organization's more notable members include former President Jimmy Carter, writer John Grisham, NASA astronaut Wendy Lawrence, and Netscape founder James Barksdale.
