Phi Beta Delta is the first honor society dedicated to promoting international
understanding and to recognizing individuals who have demonstrated scholarly
achievement in international education and exchange. The society was established
as a national organization in 1987 and has grown to become an international
society with over 135 chapters. Its membership includes distinguished faculty
and staff, international students and scholars, and U.S. students. Members display
a strong and active international interest and commitment, as well as a desire
to promote international and cross-cultural understanding.
The Oklahoma State University Epsilon Upsilon Chapter was chartered in December
2003. Its mission is to serve as a means of encouraging interdisciplinary international
programming and promote the exchange of ideas and information among a network
of faculty, staff, and students involved in international endeavors.
The society uses Greek to express its core values:
Phi Beta Delta’s colors are red and gold.
