Deadline Approaching for Phi Kappa Phi Student Leadership Summit


The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi—the nation’s oldest and most selective collegiate honor society for all academic disciplines—is currently accepting applications for its 2017 Student Vice President Leadership Summit. 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.

“Being able to network with other student vice presidents from across the country and understanding that we are all going through common things within our chapter was valuable,” said Charlene Gallagher, a previous attendee. “I really feel like the seminars made a huge impact on the way that I view and understand leadership.”

The deadline to apply for the event is 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 for the full 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.
