THE WORK WE DO

THE WORK WE DO

Our Mission

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.

Our Commitments

Our work involves providing support for the continued success of the nation’s top community college students, while also working to support and strengthen the nation’s community colleges through the following three commitments.

Caring For Students

Commitment 1

Our work centers around increasing recognition and opportunities for student engagement among our members. Because we know that self-efficacy and student engagement are closely tied with student success, we have sought out ways to connect with and support as many students as possible—including adult and traditional students, full- and part-time students, students who are dually enrolled, and students attending entirely online.

Our Progress

815 Acts of Service

Chapters completed 815 community- and college-based undergraduate research and leadership projects benefiting their colleges and local communities.

Caring For Students Success

Commitment 2

Phi Theta Kappa focuses its work primarily on providing programming and supports to its members; but student success doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Through our research, we have learned that student success is complex and requires coordinated and intentional efforts by students, colleges, individuals, organizations, policymakers, and members of business and industry.

Our Progress

106,000 students utilized PTK Connect

PTK Connect is our online transfer college reserach tool to inform transfer decisions.

Caring For Community Colleges

Commitment 3

Community colleges are quality institutions, and PTK members provide some of the best evidence of that quality. We work to leverage the experiences and voices of our members to advocate for the value of community college education among their peers and others. We do this by equipping students to be advocates and by providing them with platforms and opportunities to elevate the value of their community college experience.
