Faculty and staff
Existing Phi Kappa Phi members may nominate faculty and staff who have demonstrated scholarly distinction to become members of Phi Kappa Phi. The chapter officers will review nominations and invite a limited number of nominated individuals each year to join the society. Nominations can be submitted by completing our nomination form.
If you are a faculty or staff member and are interested in becoming involved in Phi Kappa Phi, please contact one of our chapter officers. We are always looking for new members who are interested in helping to further our mission.
How will I know if I'm invited?
Each Spring semester, the Phi Kappa Phi chapter officers work with the Office of the University Registrar to identify students who meet our eligibility criteria. Eligible students will receive an e-mail at their MIX account providing details on how to join.
