Biographical Note: The Middle Tennessee State University chapter of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi was chartered and installed on December 6, 1987. The primary objective of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is to recognize and encourage superior scholarship in all academic disciplines. Those persons elected to membership are truly students of good character and outstanding scholarship. No more than ten percent of the graduating class, including up to five percent of the junior class, are eligible for membership. Provisions also exist for election of faculty members and graduate students who merit recognition.

Scope and Content: The Records of the Phi Kappa Phi are arranged into two series: National and MTSU Chapter, and these series are further divided into subseries and description of contents.

National Series (1989-1998) includes two subseries. Subseries (I) includes publications produced at the National level by the Phi Kappa Phi Honors Society from 1989 to 1997. These publications were used by the MTSU Chapter. Subseries (II) includes records for the Triennial Convention. These records consist of triennial reviews, officer and committee reports, and meeting minutes for the Triennial Conventions from 1992 to1998.

MTSU Chapter Series (1986-1999) includes applications for membership, brochures, correspondence, financial reports, and newsletters.

Associated Materials: There are no additional materials associated with these records.
