Phi Theta Kappa (Tau Beta Chapter)

Mission Statement

Recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students.  Provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming.


The Tau Beta Chapter strives to meet the Phi Theta Kappa hallmarks of leadership, fellowship, scholarship, and service to club members through travel opportunities, leadership development, research skills, and group collaboration. We work to bring awareness of Phi Theta Kappa to students on campus, meet needs in the community through service projects, complete research and scholarly projects through the Phi Theta Kappa organization, and develop personal leadership skills through the "Competitive Edge" program. We also travel to regional and national conferences to further the development of the chapter and our members. Additionally, there is $87 million in scholarships available exclusively for members who are transferring to four year schools or continuing their education in other ways.

How to Join

Interested in joining Phi Theta Kappa? Induction ceremonies are held twice a year, and students who are eligible will be contacted in advance to notify them of their eligibility. The cost of membership is $80, but the advantages of joining are worth so much more! For more information on Phi Theta Kappa, you can visit
