Big Idea: Rejuvenating Phi Beta Kappa Chapter

Chemistry Professor Jeffrey Kovac is working on a big idea—reactivating UT’s chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa national honor society. Phi Beta Kappa is the nation’s oldest and best-known honor society. It was founded at the College of William and Mary in 1776, during the American Revolution. UT established its Phi Beta Kappa chapter in 1965.
