The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi—the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all disciplines—has announced that applications for its 2017 Student Vice President Leadership Summit are now available. The Summit will be held July 13-16 in Denver, Colorado.
Now in its third year, the two-day event will bring together student vice presidents from Phi Kappa Phi chapters across the country to engage in activities aimed at bolstering leadership development skills. Participants will also have the opportunity to network with other student vice presidents and learn strategies for enhancing Phi Kappa Phi chapters.
“I cannot stress enough how beneficial this Summit was for me,” said Jaime Staengel, a previous attendee. “The ability to hear what other chapters are doing or have done to improve was valuable, and I took some ideas away that I plan to implement at Murray State University.”
Applications for the event will be accepted on a rolling basis until May 15, 2017. Nominations will be limited to one student vice president per Phi Kappa Phi chapter.
To be eligible to attend, students must be an active member of Phi Kappa Phi and currently serve as a student vice president within their chapter. Members must also be returning to campus as a full-time student during the 2017-2018 academic year.
Established in 2013 and hosted every other year, the Student Vice President Leadership Summit was developed to engage Phi Kappa Phi’s student vice presidents in personal and organizational development. Since its creation, more than 125 students have attended the event.
