David Diggs (Ph.D. ’23), a doctoral student in the Mary Frances Early College of Education’s department of kinesiology, represented UGA at the Phi Kappa Phi Student Vice President Leadership Summit last month.
Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi is a multidisciplinary honor society that recognizes and promotes academic excellence in all fields of higher education and engages the community of scholars in service to others.
The Leadership Summit provided more than 50 student leaders from the U.S., Guam and the Philippines with the opportunity to increase their knowledge of Phi Kappa Phi and connect with their peers through small group discussions. In addition, the students learned about their strengths and leadership capacities and created strategies for increasing chapter visibility and member engagement.
“The summit was an exciting time to engage in divergent conversations with creative, passionate student leaders to create change on our campuses and in our communities," Diggs said.
