The primary objective of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi is the recognition and encouragement of superior scholarship in all academic disciplines. By drawing its membership from all fields of study within the academic institution, Phi Kappa Phi also serves as a unifying force in higher education.

The Society was founded to cultivate a deep appreciation and respect for scholarship and is convinced that in recognizing and honoring those persons of good character who have excelled in scholarship, in whatever field, it will stimulate others to strive for excellence.

Moreover, the Society serves the interests of the student capable of excellence by insisting that in order to acquire a chapter of Phi Kappa Phi, an institution provide the means and atmosphere conducive to academic excellence.

Phi Kappa Phi is an honor society, not an honorary society or fraternity. Membership is earned; it is truly an honor to be invited to membership.
