UT Phi Kappa Phi Chapter Named Circle of Excellence Gold Chapter
The University of Tampa was recognized as a Circle of Excellence Gold Chapter by the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, the nation’s oldest and most selective honor society for all academic disciplines.
The award is given to chapters that exceed expectations in chapter operations and demonstrate sustainability and vitality as a chapter. The Circle of Excellence Gold recognition is awarded to chapters that score 95-99 on a criteria scale that evaluates chapter health indicators. By receiving this distinction, the UT chapter is recognized for thriving as a chapter that holds annual initiations, uphold the Society Bylaws, regularly attends chapter training opportunities and submits a chapter-endorsed nominee to the Phi Kappa Phi Fellowship Program.
This is the second highest recognition that a chapter can receive from the organization.
Chapters that receive the Circle of Excellence Gold receive a commendation letter from the organization, a special recognition on the Phi Kappa Phi website and a cash award.
The program recognized 74 chapters this year, 23 of which received the Gold distinction. Phi Kappa Phi has chapters on more than 325 campuses.
