“Although Phi Theta Kappa members are acknowledged at graduation, the induction ceremony is a particularly special event for our students,” Tom McLeod, a Phi Theta Kappa advisor, said. “It allows for these students to be specifically recognized and honored for their academic achievements with family, friends, instructors, staff and administrators all in attendance. It is a well-deserved, pride-filled event for these students and their families.”

The mission statement of Phi Theta Kappa is “to recognize academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders.” To become a member, students must have completed at least 12 hours of coursework that may be applied to an associate degree while maintaining at least a 3.5 GPA.
