Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society is the only honor society serving two-year colleges offering associate degree programs. It has become one of the largest and most prestigious honor societies in higher education.

Membership into LTC's Beta Lambda Sigma Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa is
based primarily on academic excellence and is extended by invitation only.

LTC's goal is to expand our students' learning opportunities. We're also committed to extending learning beyond the classroom and throughout life–Phi Theta Kappa is one of these opportunities.

Becoming a member of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society provides more than a certificate. It offers you opportunities for personal and intellectual development as well as a valuable network of connections involving careers, scholarships and other success-oriented benefits.

Mission Statement

"The purpose of Phi Theta Kappa shall be to recognize and encourage scholarship among two-year college students. To achieve the purpose, Phi Theta Kappa shall provide opportunity for the development of leadership and service, for an intellectual climate for exchange of ideas and ideals for lively fellowship for scholars, and for stimulation of interest in continuing academic excellence."
