Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) is the international honor society for two-year college students. The purpose of PTK is to recognize and encourage scholarship, leadership, fellowship, and service among two-year college students. Its members enter into an intellectual and cultural fellowship that extends beyond a particular campus to regional and national networks. Through the achievement of these goals, Phi Theta Kappans continue to enrich themselves, their communities, and society.
