Phi Theta Kappa Chapter Achieves 5 Star Status

May 18, 2020

Schoolcraft College’s Omicron Iota Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society has achieved 5 Star Chapter Status, the highest that can be attained. 

Phi Theta Kappa’s mission is two-fold: Recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students as well as provide opportunities for individual growth and development through participation in honors, leadership, service and fellowship programming.

5 Star Chapter Status is based on writeups of the “College” and “Honors in Action” projects as well as full goal achievement. 

The purpose of the College Project is to establish a supportive relationship between the chapter and the college administration. This year, the chapter selected the Reality Ready™ program, helping plan and engage guest speakers on campus who spoke on “essential skills” needed to succeed in a variety of career paths.

“We are proud of our Phi Theta Kappa students and the partnerships that they formed with our college administration, faculty, staff and students to establish a ‘Reality Ready™’ Speakers Series that we feel can continue in years to come,” said Todd Stowell, Director, Student Activities Office.

Matt Fular, Phi Theta Kappa chapter president, wrote the story on the projects. You can view the story here
