The creativity and energy characteristic of the liberal arts enables us to continue our growth and our positive impact on the lives of our members and our nation.
The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed the resilience, generosity, and courage of our ΦBK family.
Phi Beta Kappa has a unique voice to contribute to conversations that matter today.
Phi Beta Kappa addresses efforts to eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Phi Beta Kappa has an important role to play in affirming the benefits of education, especially liberal arts education, for all of society.
Earning a key symbolizes a founding American ideal that many have questioned lately: opening the doors to opportunity based on merit.
The Society recently adopted a new strategic plan, “Mapping the Future of the Phi Beta Kappa Society,” that focuses on ΦBK’s potential role in a changing world.
A free and self-governing people require engaged and informed members of society. For this project, liberal arts education remains absolutely essential.
Our advocacy efforts are essential, especially in polarized times. The value of higher education, and the liberal arts in particular, requires champions on both sides of the aisle.
I am inspired by the way in which new members understand how liberal education prepares them for their future, and how they reject the false dichotomy of being prepared for either a meaningful life or a productive life.
As we enter another season of Phi Beta Kappa induction ceremonies at our 286 chapters across the country, I am struck by the relevance of our mission.
