Phi Theta Kappa
Your Phi Theta Kappa chapter at Heartland Community College is named Alpha Omega Xi. In order to become an official Phi Theta Kappa member of the Alpha Omega Xi chapter, you must meet the following requirements:
- You must be enrolled in a regionally accredited institution offering an Associate degree program;
- You must have completed at least 12 hours of coursework that may be applied to an Associate degree;
- You must have a grade point average of 3.5;
- You must receive an invitation to membership from the chapter at the college where presently enrolled;
- You must adhere to the moral standards of the society.
Anyone who has met these requirements will be invited by Phi Theta Kappa headquarters and by the chapter to accept membership and be officially inducted as a member of the chapter. Membership into Phi Theta Kappa costs $85.
Phi Theta Kappa revolves around four basic pillars, also known as our Hallmarks:
Programs primarily focus on educating chapter members, other chapters, the college’s student body, and the community about important issues raised by the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Study Topic. Chapter programming related to the Scholarship Hallmark should also recognize and encourage the academic achievements of members, students and faculty.
Programs encourage chapters and members to assume roles as leaders in their chapters, colleges and communities as well as on regional and/or international levels of the Society. In addition to assuming leadership positions, chapters are encouraged to foster the development of leadership skills among others through their programming.
Chapter initiatives related to the Service Hallmark should be primarily focused on the International Service Program. Other Service Hallmark activities include both service to the college and community outside the scope of the International Service Program, and activities that stress to others the value of and need for providing service.
Phi Theta Kappa is truly a fellowship of scholars. As such, the hallmark of Fellowship is an intrinsic part of all Society programs. Chapters promote development among inactive chapters, facilitate communication between chapters and offer a balance of social and scholarly events.
