Spring 2020: Important updates regarding COVID-19

As we respond to rapidly changing developments in the COVID-19 pandemic, Phi Beta Kappa is committed to protecting the health of our members first and foremost. Our chapters will still invite and register students and we are working to provide resources for virtual induction ceremonies. Our associations will be following CDC and local guidelines on events. While we may be challenged in getting together in person over the coming weeks, we know that students will still become members, and associations will return to stellar programming as soon as safely possible.  


This is a great time to experience Phi Beta Kappa virtually. Join us on FacebookTwitterInstagram and LinkedIn for vibrant content and community, including podcasts and virtual book groups. Also, take a minute to share your induction story. We’d love to hear your Phi Beta Kappa memories and share them with our newest members.
