LEXINGTON, Ky. (Oct. 30, 2012) — The University of Kentucky chapter of Phi Kappa Phi (PKP), the nation's oldest and most selective all-discipline honor society, inducted more than 70 new members Monday evening, Oct. 29, including Eli Capilouto, the 12th president of UK.

 

A total of five faculty and administrative leaders, along with outstanding undergraduate, graduate, and professional students were initiated into the organization in the annual ceremony held in the Student Center.  Each fall, the chapter initiates eligible juniors, seniors, graduate students, faculty, staff, alumni and community leaders into its ranks.  PKP recognizes students for their academic excellence and service to the community.   

 

Others inducted included Larry Grabau, associate dean for instruction in the College of Agriculture; Kathi Kern, professor of history and director of the Center for the Enhancement of Learning and Teaching; Mark Kornbluh, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences; and, Gerald Smith, associate professor of history and former director of the African American Studies and Research Program.

 

Phi Kappa Phi was founded in 1897 at the University of Maine and boasts more than 1 million members, a global network comprised of the best and brightest from all academic disciplines.  It is a community of scholars and professionals with the goal of building an enduring legacy for future generations.

 

The UK chapter of PKP is led by Emmett "Buzz" Burnam, director of recruitment for diversity initiatives, who serves as the chapter president.
