Summary

Phi Beta Kappa continues to host events around the country to promote the liberal arts and sciences.

Full Description
Fifty years ago PBK sponsored a national conversation about the value of the liberal arts in higher education in America, and with its partner associations took that conversation to Capitol Hill.  In September, 1965 President Lyndon Johnson sealed the resolve of members of Congress who took their direction from learned voices that PBK helped assemble.  In a Rose Garden ceremony and by Act of Congress, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) were born.  Follow the link for PBK's new NATIONAL ARTS & SCIENCES INITIATIVE and the ToolKit designed to renew that message for our generation.
