Phi Theta Kappa Honors in Action
Incorporating the Four Hallmarks
Scholarship, Leadership, Service, & Fellowship


The Phi Theta Kappa Experience through Honors in Action means that scholars are engaging with their communities using the Phi Theta Kappa Hallmarks of Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Fellowship to seek solutions to the world's challenges related to the Honors Study Topic.

Honors in Action Projects are a way of exploring the Phi Theta Kappa Honors Study Topic. Honors in Action is the process that provides opportunities to apply learning and practice real-world problem-solving by developing an in-depth, action-oriented project related to Honors Study Topic research.  Academic research into the themes related to the Honors Study Topic is what makes the difference between Honors in Action and simply action.  Honors in Action is informed action designed to make a lasting impact and contribute to the betterment of society.

The Honors Study Topic changes every two years so that it will always be a timely and relevant subject of importance to the human experience in global context.

The Honors Case Study Challenge is an academic research competition based on the Honors Study Topic and includes cash awards and online publication of winning entries.

The Phi Theta Kappa Honors Institute is a five-day summer conference examining the Honors Study Topic using speaker presentations and small group discussions.
