UW-Green Bay holds first Phi Kappa Phi spring initiation ceremony

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay chapter of the Phi Kappa Phi national honor society held its first spring initiation ceremony, celebrating staff and students who excel in their field.

Established in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest and most selective all-discipline honor society. Its mission is to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others.

The UW-Green Bay chapter, founded in 1997, earned the national society’s Chapter of Excellence Award in 2014. The national organization made the award to recognize faculty who devote time to the chapter’s operation and students who are actively involved and assist with planning chapter activities.
