Confer One of 10 in the U.S. Selected for Honor Society Student Council

Duquesne University senior Stephanie Confer is one of just 10 students from across the nation to be selected to serve on The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi Council of Students.

Comprised of 10 student vice presidents from across the United States, the council serves as a student advisory panel for Phi Kappa Phi, which is the nation's oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines.

A resident of Erie, Pa., Confer will represent Phi Kappa Phi's Northeast region for a two-year term. A member of the Duquesne chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, Confer is pursuing a double major in digital media arts and advertising with minors in psychology and history at the University.

Established in 2007, the Council of Students is tasked with enhancing communication with student vice presidents, planning and hosting a student leadership conference, and interacting with student vice presidents within their respective regions, among other tasks.

Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa annually inducts approximately 32,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni. The Society has chapters at more than 300 select colleges and universities in North America and the Philippines.
