By Elana Goodwin on May 11, 2017

This will be the third year the Summit takes place, and the two-day event brings together student vice presidents from Phi Kappa Phi chapters across the nation to participate in activities intended to strengthen and develop leadership skills. Those who attend the Summit also have the chance to connect and network with other student vice presidents and learn strategies that can help improve Phi Kappa Phi chapters.

“I cannot stress enough how beneficial this Summit was for me,” said Jaime Staengel, a previous Summit attendee. “The ability to hear what other chapters are doing or have done to improve was valuable, and I took some ideas away that I plan to implement at Murray State University.”

Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi is the country’s oldest and most exclusive collegiate honor society for all academic majors. Every year, it inducts approximately 30,000 students, faculty, and other professional staff, and there are chapters at more than 300 colleges and universities in North America and the Philippines.

Membership in Phi Kappa Phi is by invitation only to the top 10 percent of seniors and grad students and the top 7.5 percent of juniors. Faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have accomplished scholarly distinction also qualify for membership. The Society’s 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 deadline to apply to attend the Summit is May 15. Nominations are limited to one student vice president per Phi Kappa Phi chapter. To qualify to attend the Summit, students have to be an active member of Phi Kappa Phi and also currently serve as a student VP in their chapter. Applicants must also be returning to campus as a full-time student for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Since being established in 2013, the Student Vice President Leadership Summit has been hosted every other year and more than 125 students have attended the event. To learn more about the Summit and download an application, go to www.phikappaphi.org/summit.
