From the Secretary: Report from the Triennial Council
This past summer, we convened the 46th ΦBK Triennial Council, the first ever to be entirely virtual. We gathered to celebrate the fundamental role that liberal arts and sciences education plays in our society and our democracy.
Visiting Scholar Marta Tienda
Tienda (ΦBK, Michigan State University), professor emerita of sociology at Princeton University, is one of 13 prominent scholars in the liberal arts and sciences selected to serve as a ΦBK Visiting Scholar during the 2021-2022 academic year.
New ΦBK Chapters Created
Phi Beta Kappa voted to establish three new chapters at the 46th Triennial Council. The Society awarded new chapters to Phi Beta Kappa faculty at Providence College, Rollins College, and University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
ΦΒΚ President & Vice President Elected
The Society is pleased to announce the election of Peter Quimby as president of the Society. Esther Jones was elected as vice president. Both positions are for a three-year term from 2021 to 2024. The election took place August 5 at the Society’s 46th Triennial Council.
I give to Phi Beta Kappa because at this time of attacks on facts, rigorous analysis, and critical thinking, the Society’s advocacy of excellence in the liberal arts and sciences has never been more important.
