About the Mu Chapter
Brandeis University fielded a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa in 1961, only 13 years after its founding. No other university in the United States has been granted the privilege to form a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa more quickly than Brandeis.
Since its founding at Brandeis, the Mu Chapter has awarded Phi Beta Kappa honors to 2,349 students from 59 countries.
Phi Beta Kappa is the oldest and most prestigious undergraduate honors organization in the United States.
Founded at the College of William and Mary in 1776, its high and rigorous standards of excellence have made election to it one of the highest academic honors an undergraduate at a college in the United States can receive.
