About The National Arts and Sciences Initiative
The Phi Beta Kappa Society has championed excellence in the arts and sciences since 1776. Higher education is at a crossroads, with many of our country's leaders questioning the need for a broad-based curriculum. To strengthen support for the value of the arts and sciences today, ΦBK has launched a multi-year National Arts & Sciences Initiative. The initiative will demonstrate that a broad-based arts and sciences education expands opportunity, drives ingenuity and innovation, and makes a strong investment in America.
Through the initiative, ΦBK will tap into its cross-country network of members, chapters, and associations to connect with our nation’s leaders, share the important story of the arts’ and sciences’ value through all of life, and advocate for policies that strengthen an arts and sciences education.
