University of Kentucky Inducts New Members Into Phi Beta Kappa

The University of Kentucky chapter of Phi Beta Kappa recently inducted 32 new members into the prestigious academic honor society. This year's induction ceremony, originally scheduled for April 22, was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Celebrating excellence in the liberal arts and sciences, Phi Beta Kappa elects more than 15,000 new members a year from 270 chapters across the United States. There are also nearly 50 alumni associations across the country that allow members to continue active affiliation with the society after graduation.

"Phi Beta Kappa is the nation's oldest and most prestigious academic honor society, and these students' induction is a testament to their hard and fruitful academic labors during their time at UK," said Philip Harling, chapter president and UK College of Arts & Sciences professor of history. "It's an honor they've richly deserved, and it's a great pleasure to recognize their achievements in this way."
