Phi Theta Kappa: College Project

Make your College Project a success!

One World Festival Registration

What is the PTK College Project? 

The College Project is designed to develop, build, and maintain a supportive relationship between Pi Theta and the HCC college administration. It is an excellent opportunity to collaborate with administrators and to support the mission of the college. 

How does it work?

The Pi Theta chapter meets with the College President to discuss ways to help improve the college or the college experience for students. Projects can be anything as long as it benefits the college and is approved by the administration. 

Tips to consider in planning to develop a College Project:

  • Know the college mission statement and current strategic goals. These will help you when brainstorming ideas and you want to show the college administration you are familiar with the school's mission. 
  • Listen to the needs of the college administration. Learn what their concerns are and what ideas they may have to help implement change. 
  • Keep open lines of communication regarding status of project completion and obstacles encountered. The College Project is a process! It will take time to complete and you'll want to keep the administration up to date with how things are progressing.
