The Phi Beta Kappa Association of New York (PBKNY) is a local association for elected Phi Beta Kappa alumni members who live in the New York City metropolitan area. We report to but are distinguished from The Phi Beta Kappa Society in Washington, where students are inducted from Chapters within Universities nationwide.
Our mission is to foster educational excellence and intellectual stimulation through participation in activities and programs for local Phi Beta Kappa members, potential members and the community at large.
PBKNY offers activities for Phi Beta Kappa alumni in the area who would like to gather for socializing, education, networking and community service. Phi Betes (and guests) are welcome – it does not matter where or when you were inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.
Support the National Arts & Sciences Initiative
The Phi Beta Kappa Society has championed excellence in the arts and sciences since 1776. To strengthen support for the value of the arts and sciences as higher education faces a crossroads today, PBK has launched a multi-year National Arts & Sciences Initiative. For further details, click here.
