Phi Beta Kappa

The Phi Beta Kappa Society is devoted to excellence in the Liberal Arts and Sciences, the academic subjects examining the history, structure, and meaning of the natural world and of the human experience. Liberal, derived from the Latin word liberalis, refers to freedom, the freedom to explore, to think, and to discuss important issues without being bound by illegitimate restraints.
