The Pittsburgh Association is a growing organization in the Pittsburgh metro area. Our members cover a wide range of backgrounds and professions, but all of us are interested in advancing Phi Beta Kappa’s ideals of recognizing student excellence, advocating for the arts and sciences in our community, and furthering our own love of learning.

THE NATION'S MOST PRESTIGIOUS ACADEMIC HONOR SOCIETY
Since our founding in 1776, Phi Beta Kappa has celebrated excellence in the liberal arts and sciences and championed freedom of thought. As America’s most prestigious academic honor society, we are uniquely equipped to advocate for the value and benefits of liberal arts and sciences education. We do this because we believe the curiosity and creativity cultivated by a liberal arts and sciences education are essential to making the most of life’s experiences. At Phi Beta Kappa, we are the key that opens doors to lifelong opportunity.
