Phi Theta Kappa Chapter Members at Schoolcraft College Choose “Peace and War” as Theme for Annual Honors in Action Academic Project, Part of International Society’s “How the World Works” Focus
Each year, student members Schoolcraft College’s Omnicron Iota Chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) international honorary scholastic society select a theme for its Honors in Action (HIA) project as part of the international society annual competition for two year colleges. This year’s theme for the project will be “Peace and War: How does conflict impact people and the way in which the world works?” This theme aligns with the international PTK society’s focus: “How the World Works: Global Perspectives.”
As part of the HIA project, student members of Schoolcraft College’s chapter will perform academic research on the topic and from that research perform an action that shares the results of the research with others and identifies actions or initiative that can be implemented to advocate and/or affect a specific cause.
“Our students will also report on the results of this research and work that will be submitted to the Phi Theta Kappa headquarters for judging on an international scale,” said Todd Stowell, director of Student Activities. The international Phi Theta Kappa awards ceremony for the HIA projects will help held in Nashville, TN in April, 2017.
