Mount Vernon Nazarene University: Life Changing

Phi Delta Lambda Honor Society

Purpose | Activities, Sponsored Events | Scholarship Recipient | Giving | Contact Us


Phi Delta Lambda is a national honor society of graduates of the higher education institutions sponsored by the Church of the Nazarene in North America. MVNU's chapter, the Kappa chapter, was organized in 1976 with the graduation of the first baccalaureate class.

Membership in the honor society is by vote of the faculty of Mount Vernon Nazarene University, who may elect up to 15% of the baccalaureate degree graduating class from those graduates who have earned a minimum 3.5 cumulative grade point average.

The Greek letters signify core honor society values: Φ (phi for philosophia) for the love of wisdom, Δ (delta for dikaiosune) for righteousness, and Λ (lambda for latreia) for service. Thus the Kappa chapter seeks to (1) nurture the ideals of the love of wisdom, the practice of righteousness, and the attitude of service, (2) promote cordial relations between students and graduates of MVNU, and (3) encourage these ideals in the institutional life of the University.

Activities and Sponsored Events

The Kappa chapter sponsors annual activities and events to support scholarship, spiritual discipline, and service.
