Welcome new Phi Beta Kappa initiates and returning campus members!

I am proud to serve this year as President of the Mu Chapter of PBK. This year we aim to connect with our members around matters of moment and to increase the diversity of our ranks. We hope you will join us for the PBK Lecture by actor, director and writer Roger Guenveur Smith on May 5-6, 2021.
