Phi Kappa Phi at VCU

Since its founding, Phi Kappa Phi has initiated more than one million members. Its chapters are on more than 300 campuses in the United States and the Philippines. The society’s mission is “to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others."

The VCU chapter was installed on December 3, 1976, and continues honoring academic achievement by initiating members and awarding scholarships at annual ceremonies. Chapter invitations are sent yearly in October. Click here to learn more about membership requirements.
