Phi Kappa Phi will install its 348th chapter at Frostburg State University in Frostburg, Maryland, today, March 16. Founded in 1897 at the University of Maine, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest and most selective all-discipline collegiate honor society.
The installation of the Frostburg State University chapter comes after a thorough chartering process and approval from the Society’s board of directors. To be eligible, an institution must be a regionally accredited four-year college or university with an established reputation of excellence and an expressed commitment to upholding the values of the Society.
“The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is pleased to welcome Frostburg State University to its community of scholars,” said Society Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd. “Frostburg stands out as a public institution focused on developing civic learning and democratic engagement in its students.”
Officers elected by the chartering group to serve the newly installed chapter include President Dr. Gregory Wood, President-elect Dr. Natalie Schuster, Secretary Dr. Cindy Herzog and Treasurer Dr. Heather Gable.
