According to the national PKP, the Chapter of Excellence is given to chapters that excel in recognizing and promoting academic excellence in all fields of higher education and engaging the community of scholars in service to others.

By receiving the Chapter of Excellence distinction, APSU’s chapter is being recognized as a thriving organization that meets frequently, holds annual initiations and applies frequently for Phi Kappa Phi’s select scholarships, grants and fellowships.

APSU’s chapter will receive several benefits as a result of the award, including:

  • A commendation letter from the Society sent to chapter officers and campus administration.
  • Special recognition on PKP’s website, publications and at Phi Kappa Phi’s National Convention.
  • Specially designed logo for use in chapter communications.
  • Recognition advertisements in local media and educational journals.
  • A $500.00 award.

The APSU chapter is known on campus and in the community for its Candy for the Mind Project. For the eleventh consecutive Halloween, the APSU chapter sponsored the project, and provided a free book to each child attending the G.H.O.S.T. safe trick-or-treating event held each year on the APSU campus. This year, approximately 2,000 children received books during G.H.O.S.T.

Book collections began in early October, with collection boxes placed in the Woodward Library and other locations on campus. Financial donations also were accepted. PKP members use the donations to purchase age-appropriate books.
