UVM Students Inducted into Phi Beta Kappa
Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most prestigious academic honor society in the United States. Membership in Phi Beta Kappa is a rare honor, and academics and employers recognize it as a mark of intellectual breadth and exceptional academic performance. UVM's chapter was chartered in 1848, making it the eleventh chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. It has a rich history in its own right, being the first chapter in the nation to elect women and African Americans to membership.
