Phi Kappa Phi Celebrates National Volunteer Week

Apr 24, 2017

_NVW_Logo_horz_pol_2017This week marks the 43rd National Volunteer Week—a week aimed at inspiring and recognizing volunteers who work together to accomplish a multitude of goals. 

In honor of National Volunteer Week, Phi Kappa Phi celebrates the outstanding efforts of its board members, committee members and chapter officers who serve more than 300 chapters nationwide. The commitment and support of these volunteers enable Phi Kappa Phi to continue its 120-year history of recognizing and promoting academic excellence in all fields of higher education.

“Phi Kappa Phi depends on the commitment and energy of nearly 2,000 volunteers annually to manage our chapters, serve on boards and committees, and support the mission of the Society,” said Society Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd. “For much of its history Phi Kappa Phi was run completely by volunteers. Even now, when the daily work is managed by staff, we continue to depend on the good help of those members who offer their time and talent to assure the success of our programs.

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 as a way to recognize and thank volunteers who lend their time, talent, voice and support to causes they care about in their communities.
