Phi Kappa Phi - Texas Tech University

Spring 2023 PKP Initiation


Phi Kappa Phi

Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest, and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines. Its chapters are on more than 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Each year, approximately 30,000 members are initiated.

Since its founding, Phi Kappa Phi has initiated more than one million members into its ranks; all of these members have received emblems and certificates of membership. However, Phi Kappa Phi is much more than an emblem and a line on a résumé. It is a global network comprised of the best and brightest from all academic disciplines - a community of scholars and professionals building an enduring legacy for future generations.


After the official census date in both the Fall and Spring Semesters, invitations are sent by email to students who meet eligibility requirements.  In the spring, there is an initiation ceremony for all new members. more»

Invitations are also sent to nominated faculty, staff and alumni.


Per Texas Tech University, students may wear Phi Kappa Phi stoles, cords, medallions and pins, but must wear university tassels. more»
