The Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 and has more than 300 chapters in the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines. It is the oldest academic honor society at USC that is fully interdisciplinary, electing members from all recognized branches of scholarship, research, and artistic endeavor. The honor society’s mission is to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others. At the fall recognition ceremony a select group of junior undergraduates are initiated and sophomores who are on the path to qualifying for initiation are recognized for their outstanding accomplishments to date. Featured speakers include Thornton School of Music junior Rose Campion and Peter G. Mancall, the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of the Humanities at USC, Vice Dean for the Humanities and Social Sciences, and Director of the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute.
