Phi Theta Kappa chapters have five levels of engagement that progress from local, campus involvement to regional involvement to international involvement.
Using the Five Star Chapter Development Plan as a guide to success, chapters can enhance their working relationship with the college administration by becoming active on the campus and in the community.

Chapters are encouraged to allow online membership acceptance. Visit the membership campaign website for additional resources.
