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, Providence, Rhode Island; Rollins College, Winter Park, Florida; and University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Charlotte, North Carolina.
The addition of these three new chapters will bring the total number of Phi Beta Kappa chapters at U.S. colleges and universities to 293 nationwide. The founding members of each new chapter will organize the official chapter installation and first induction ceremonies for new members at their institutions in the coming months.
“Campuses that shelter Phi Beta Kappa chapters reflect their deep and abiding commitment to the liberal arts and sciences, for today and on into the future,” said Phi Beta Kappa Secretary and CEO Frederick M. Lawrence. “These institutions provide a challenging liberal arts and sciences curriculum for the enrichment of their students, and we look forward to recognizing the outstanding accomplishments of these students. We are delighted to welcome Providence, Rollins, and UNC Charlotte into the Phi Beta Kappa family.”
