Phi Beta Kappa

Application for Our Chapter

Lynchburg College is applying for a chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. PBK recognizes excellence in the liberal arts and sciences (humanities, social science, and science).

The Lynchburg College Phi Beta Kappa faculty and staff have formed the LC PBK Organization to focus on and highlight Lynchburg College’s achievements in the arts and sciences.

Arts & Sciences

At Lynchburg College, “arts and sciences” will mean all the fields of study in our School of Humanities & Social Sciences and School of Sciences, plus Art History and Museum Studies from the School of Communications and the Arts, and Economics from the School of Business.

We refer to this as LC’s Virtual School of Arts and Sciences for the purposes of PBK reporting.

LC PBK Organization Members

All LC faculty members, staff, graduate students and local graduate student alumni who were Phi Beta Kappa at their undergraduate institutions are automatically LC PBK Organization members.

  • If you are a new professor, staff member, or graduate student or local graduate alumnus and are PBK, please notify Laura Marello at as soon as possible.
