Phi Kappa Phi was founded at the University of Maine in 1897. The society has chapters all across the nation and in Puerto Rico and the Philippines. Currently headquartered in Baton Rouge, La., Phi Kappa Phi inducts more than 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff, and alumni annually. Some of the organization’s more notable members include former President Jimmy Carter; Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton; NASA astronaut Wendy Lawrence; writer John Grisham; opera singer Renee Fleming; journalist and broadcaster Deborah Norville; and Netscape founder James Barksdale.
