  • Primary: Programs encourage chapters and members to assume roles as leaders in their chapters, colleges, and communities as well as on regional and/or international levels of the Society.

  • This program, which reflects the scholarly ideals of Phi Theta Kappa, serves as a blueprint for developing a strong chapter and for earning local, regional, and international recognition.

Using the Five Star Chapter Development Program as a guide to success, chapters can enhance their working relationship with the college administration by becoming active on the campus and in the community. On a personal level, involvement in the program will educate chapter members in the importance of deadlines and organizational skills. The strength of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society is determined by the achievements of chapters on the local level. Recognition for these achievements provides reinforcement and encourages a recommitment to chapter goals.

  • Phi Theta Kappa Mission

To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa shall provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service , for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals , for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.
  • Overview
    • Phi Theta Kappa’s purpose is to first and foremost recognize scholarly achievement among two-year college students. In addition to this, members have opportunities for personal growth through involvement in a variety of programs centered on the Society Hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service and Fellowship. Many Phi Theta Kappa programs also promote civic engagement, by encouraging participants to think of chapter programming in terms of its impact on the college campus and in the community.
  • Civic Engagement
    • The civic engagement initiative of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society is not a program, as chapters are not required to enroll or participate in particular events. Rather, it is a way of framing Phi Theta Kappa’s programs - an umbrella under which many Phi Theta Kappa programs fall.
