History and Mission

Phi Theta Kappa was established by five Missouri two-year college presidents on November 19, 1918, as a means to celebrate academic success.  Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year College students.

The Students are provided opportunities for individual growth and development through honors, leadership, and service programming. Today Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in American higher education with more than 3.4 million members in over 1900 chapters located in all 50 states, in Europe, and in the Middle East.  Delgado's chapter, the Omega Nu chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, was established on City Park Campus in 1973.

The mission of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize academic achievement of college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars and leaders.
