The 2018 event will take place on Saturday, October 20, at 7:30 P.M. in Swarthout Recital Hall, School of Music. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided courtesy of Phi Beta Delta and the Office of the Vice Provost of Student Affairs.
New Member Induction Ceremony
Each fall, new members are inducted into Phi Beta Delta during a formal ceremony. All members are invited to celebrate. The 2018 keynote speaker is Prof. Tamara Falicov, a Fulbright alumni and professor of film at KU. Join us on Wednesday, November 14, at 7:30 P.M. in the Malott Room, Kansas Union. A short reception will follow.
Picture the World Photo Contest
Phi Beta Delta holds "Picture the World," an annual photo contest for KU students, visiting scholars, current or retired faculty and staff, and alumni every spring. The contest celebrates and chronicles international exposure and experiences. More information will be available at a later time.
In the spring, Phi Beta Delta holds a potluck for all Phi Beta Delta members to celebrate their achievements and present awards. The 2019 potluck date is TBD.
Exploring Opportunities for Collaboration
Phi Beta Delta is eager to make connections with other campus organizations and departments to host meaningful activities with an international focus. If you are part of a group that would be interested in co-sponsoring events, please contact Chapter Coordinator Emma Hage, firstname.lastname@example.org.
- For many years, Phi Beta Delta hosted an International Scholar Reception in the fall.
- In spring 2016, Phi Beta Delta took part in "KU Engages the World: Biodiversity Studies on a Global Scale." This included presentations such as Being an Academic in a Global Context (Prof. Town Peterson) and 25 Years of Philippine Amphibian Research (Prof. Rafe Brown).
- Our local chapter has been responsible for the installation of a Peace Pole on the University of Kansas campus, and continually organizes or co-sponsors panels and speakers that relate to international topics throughout the year. See photos from the dedication ceremony.
