A tip of the Kappa to UW-Green Bay’s Phi Kappa Phi

The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi — the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines — recently recognized the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay chapter of Phi Kappa Phi as a Chapter of Merit. The award is given to chapters that excel in recognizing and promoting academic excellence in all fields of higher education and engaging the community of scholars in service to others. There are only about 300 Phi Kappa Phi chapters nationwide, and Chapter of Merit distinction for 2012 was awarded to just 54. The recognition goes to thriving chapters that meet frequently, hold annual initiations and apply frequently for Phi Kappa Phi’s select scholarships, grants and fellowships. “The UW-Green Bay Chapter of Phi Kappa Phi is honored to receive a Chapter of Merit award,” said Prof. Ryan C. Martin of Human Development, chapter president. “This award is a reflection of our faculty and staff who are committed to recognize our top students in academics, leadership, and character.”
