Phi Beta Delta - Honor Society
Phi Beta Delta is the first honor society dedicated to recognizing scholarly achievement in international education. The Society was founded at California State University-Long Beach in 1987.
The Epsilon Omega Chapter of Phi Beta Delta has re-energized and reorganized after a five year hiatus. The UNK Chapter was organized in 2004 when 51 founding members, consisting of UNK faculty, staff, international and domestic students were inducted.
Phi Beta Delta goals:
- Recognize the scholarly achievement of international students and scholars, U.S. students who have studied abroad, and faculty and staff who are involved in international activities
- Advance the development of academic-based international programming
- Provide a network on each campus for faculty, staff, and international students involved in international endeavors
- Extend this network worldwide
The goal of the Epsilon Omega chapter is to serve as a catalyst for recognizing and promoting international endeavors at UNK and to encourage successful academic, cross-cultural, and social programs.
Membership is open to:
- International students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement at UNK
- Domestic students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement in the pursuit of academic studies abroad
- Distinguished faculty, staff, and visiting scholars involved in international endeavors such as teaching, administering exchange programs, conducting research, or providing services and programs to international students and scholars
