KU chapter of Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society announces initiates

Tuesday, January 31, 2012
More Information

LAWRENCE — More than 90 University of Kansas students were initiated into the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi at the end of the fall semester.

The student members of Phi Kappa Phi represent the top of their academic programs. The KU chapter, which was established in 1975, invites only the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students, as well as the top 7.5 percent of juniors to join.

Phi Kappa Phi chapter president Marlesa Roney, a professor in the KU School of Education who recently completed an eight-year term as the university’s vice provost of Student Success, served as master of ceremonies for the initiation. Professor Rick Ginsberg, dean of the KU School of Education, was the keynote speaker.

Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest and most selective all-discipline honor society. Since its founding in 1897, more than 1 million members have been initiated.

The organization’s primary objectives are to promote the pursuit of excellence in all fields of higher education and to recognize outstanding achievement by students, faculty and others by election to membership and through awards for distinguished achievement. Members are eligible for more than $700,000 in scholarships and awards each year. Student initiates are listed below:
