The Phi Theta Kappa Honors Study Topic 2010-2011
The Democratization of Information: Power, Peril and Promise

Issue 3: Individual and Community: How does the dissemination of information influence the individual and the community?
1. To what extent does an individual have a right for his/her personal information to remain private, and who is responsible for its protection?

We are Chapter Iota Omicron and we have a mission as part of our Honors in Action. Our mission is to educate individuals on the importance of safe socialization. Technology is growing and building awareness of the dangers of social media is imperative. These pod casts are our Chapter's best advice with your best interest in mind. Our goal: create a social revolution...of awareness!

International Service Project
The goal of Phi Theta Kappa's partnership with Keep America Beautiful is to focus attention on the environment by helping to improve our communities. Learn more about how your chapter can get involved in the 2008-10 International Service Program "Operation Green."

The new 2010-2012 Honors Study Topic will be
The Democratization of Information.


Honors Study Topic
The Honors Study Topic brings important, current issues to the forefront and encourages Phi Beta Kappans to examine how these issues affect their lives. The topic, selected biennially by the Honors Committee, is utilized and explored through programs such as:

  • The annual International Honors Institute
  • The Honors Satellite Seminar Series
  • The Honors Case Study Challenge
The Honors Study Topic Program Guide is an invaluable tool for Honors Study Topic explorations.

Since the concept of using the Honors Study Topic for campus forums began in 1968, the topic has been selected to meet the needs of our two-year institutions and their diverse communities. It is always timely, international in scope, issue-oriented, appropriate for interdisciplinary study, and amenable to study on even small college campuses with limited library and research facilities.

The Phi Theta Kappa 2008-20010 Honors Study Topic is "The Paradox of Affluence: choices, challenges, and consequences." This topic will be used with our chapter, Iota Omicron, as we plan our year's events. For more information, go to http://www.ptk.org/honors/guide.
