Welcome to the webpage for RCC’s Alpha Kappa Pi Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society!
What is PTK?
Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is an international honor society with chapters all around the globe. PTK recognizes the academic achievement of college students and provides opportunities for its members to grow as scholars and leaders. Established in 1918, Phi Theta Kappa is on almost 1,300 community college campuses in 11 nations. The American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) recognized Phi Theta Kappa as the official honor society for two-year colleges in 1929. More than 3.8 million students have been inducted since 1918, with approximately 250,000 active members in the nation’s community colleges, making Phi Theta Kappa a true catalyst among members and colleges. PTK offers leadership and scholarship opportunities through their PTK Edge Workshops and PTK Connect platform, which connect scholars with merit and need-based scholarships and companies for students looking to enter the workforce immediately.
