Hobson Wildenthal Honors College at UT Dallas

Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society at UT Dallas

Established in April 2011, the UT Dallas chapter of The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi recognizes the academic achievements of our most outstanding students, alumni, faculty, and staff. With its long and distinguished history as the country's oldest, largest, and most selective multidisciplinary honor society, Phi Kappa Phi first and foremost exemplifies academic and personal excellence. The establishment of our chapter is a remarkable opportunity to nurture a community rich with traditions, creativity, and diversity.

Membership in the society is by invitation and based upon exceptional academic achievement among undergraduates and graduates in their respective disciplines. Invitations are made to students in the fall, with one induction ceremony taking place in the late fall semester. Detailed information about the qualifications for membership can be found on our chapter bylaws page. We encourage you to browse the information about awards, scholarships, and other benefits available to Phi Kappa Phi members through the national organization. These awards and benefits present our members and the university community with tremendous opportunities for academic and professional growth. Also, please also connect with us on our PKP at UT-Dallas LinkedIn page.

Without question, the greatest strength of UT Dallas is our people. Our culture is one that embraces and celebrates scholastic achievement, creative talents, and diverse pathways to success. These same values define Phi Kappa Phi and help guarantee the success and longevity of our chapter. We look forward to welcoming new inductees into our chapter and to expanding our activities in the coming year.
