The Phi Beta Kappa Society is pleased to announce the appointment of fourteen visiting scholars for 2011-2012.
Each year the Society selects top scholars in the liberal arts and sciences to travel to universities and colleges where Phi Beta Kappa chapters are located. Visiting scholars spend two days on each campus meeting informally with undergraduates, participating in classroom lectures and seminars, and giving one major address open to the entire academic community.
Since 1956, the Society’s Visiting Scholar Program has been offering undergraduates the opportunity to spend time with some of America’s most distinguished scholars and enriching the intellectual life on campuses across the country.
