Phi Theta Kappa is the largest honor society in higher education and the only honor society for two-year colleges, with nearly 1,300 chapters internationally.

Membership requires a 3.5 grade point average and 12 credit hours of college level courses.

The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize and encourage scholarship among two–year college students. To achieve this purpose, Phi Theta Kappa provides opportunities for the development of leadership and service for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas, for lively fellowship for scholars and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence.

Alpha Zeta Iota is the local chapter of Phi Theta Kappa on the Phil Campbell campus of Northwest-Shoals Community College.

The chapter completes two comprehensive projects every year. The Honors in Action project is a research-based project designed to foster a stimulating environment for intellectual growth and challenge. The project creates opportunities for leadership and learning as leaders through service and advocacy. The College Project encourages chapters to look closer to home – on their college campus and to work with college administrators – for needs and opportunities to engage and give back.
