The National Arts & Sciences Initiative

The Phi Beta Kappa Society has championed excellence in the arts and sciences since 1776. To strengthen support for the value of the arts and sciences as higher education faces a crossroads today, PBK 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
  • makes a strong investment in America
Through the initiative, PBK will tap into its cross-country network of members, chapters, and associations to connect with leaders, share the value of the arts and sciences through all of life, and advocate for policies that strengthen an arts and sciences education.
