Membership in Phi Theta Kappa is guided by the hallmarks, or cornerstones, of our Society: Leadership, Scholarship, Service, and Fellowship.

Through these hallmarks, we endeavor to improve ourselves, our communities, and the world. 

Through leadership, members of the Society take active roles in improving the lives of others and try to engage other people to do so as well. Leadership activities can include working with other chapters to accomplish a common goal, reaching out to the community for service projects, and taking an active role in helping the chapter’s campus.

By maintaining high standards of scholarship, members of the Society engage themselves to be more aware of the world and to think critically about how to make the world a better place. 

Service to the community is also a hallmark of the Society, and that service is a fundamental part of who Phi Theta Kappa is. From helping cleanup our local communities to helping national organizations like the Muscular Dystrophy Association raise money, Phi Theta Kappans all over the world are working together to help improve the world. 

Last, but least by no means, is fellowship within the society. Phi Theta Kappa members spend every opportunity they can working together on the other three hallmarks, and in the process make friends and build relationships that last a lifetime. Phi Theta Kappans believe that through building these bonds and helping one another, we build a stronger society and are more able to shape the future.
