Welcome

Greetings! Welcome to ECU's Chapter (Number 114) of Phi Kappa Phi, ECU's most distinguished academic honor society. Please feel free to explore our web site and to become familiar with our mission and our activities. We proudly provide local representation for this country's oldest and most celebrated academic honor society. Please accept our invitation to explore membership possibility and to think about joining.

In case you were unaware, Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 at the University of Maine. Phi Kappa Phi is the nation's oldest, largest, and most selective honor society for all academic disciplines. It hosts chapters on more than 300 campuses across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. Each year, approximately 30,000 members are initiated. At ECU, Chapter 114 celebrates the academic achievements of nearly 3,000 initiates since 2000.

While membership is earned and does come with symbols of success, 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. At ECU, our network of scholars is large and diverse. We proudly support and reflect ECU's rich tradition of scholarly engagement. If you have questions about our organization, feel free to contact our Chapter President, Dr. Ron Mitchelson at mitchelsonr@ecu.edu.
