Fall Service Project

In This Section:


Scholars in ServiceEach fall, chapters are encouraged to focus on a community need with a literacy component and establish a partnership with a community organization as part of this event sponsored by the Council of Students. For the purposes of this project, literacy can be defined very broadly to address the needs of the community. Some examples include adult literacy, environmental literacy, computer literacy or financial literacy. The Council also recommends inviting student organizations or campus departments to participate in the service project.

In order to maintain current social distancing guidelines, the Council also recommends hosting contactless projects such as give back nights at local restaurants where funds can be raised in the name of Phi Kappa Phi and donated to a community organization.

The service project can take place for any length of time from September to December. One chapter from each division will be honored for its commitment to the community. The national office will provide a $200 monetary contribution to each chapter’s partner community organization.

This project is a great way to promote Phi Kappa Phi on your campus! By participating in the Fall Service Project, you can help encourage a love of learning or a spirit of service within your community.

To participate in the 2020 Fall Service Project, chapters should have completed the registration form by the Sept. 30 deadline and the completion form by Jan. 31, 2021. If you have any questions, please email Michelle Lowery Gussman.
