The Nashville Association is a growing organization in the Nashville, TN 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 Nashville Phi Beta Kappa Association was established December 9, 1999.

The Nashville Alumni Association of Phi Beta Kappa was chartered by the national office of the Phi Beta Kappa Society in December 1999 with over one hundred members. Over the following years it has sustained a lively series of programs designed to celebrate the intellectual and cultural values of Phi Beta Kappa while fostering convivial social engagement among its membership. The Association has a particular commitment to supporting excellence in the humanities, arts and sciences as well as freedom of inquiry and liberty of thought and expression.

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.
