Mission Statement of the national Phi Alpha Theta

We are a professional society whose mission is to promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, good teaching, publication and the exchange of learning and ideas among historians. We seek to bring students, teachers and writers of history together for intellectual and social exchanges, which promote and assist historical research and publication by our members in a variety of ways.

Iota-Zeta Chapter of Phi Alpha Theta at UALR

Our chapter was founded in 1963 and has been in continuous existence since that time. It is one of fifteen chapters in at Arkansas colleges and universitys, the latest being that at the University of Arkansas at Monticello, whose opening ceremoney was presided over by members of the UALR chapter.

Iota-Zeta chapter recognizes outstanding achievement in the study of History. We also hope to promote a sense of shared interest among all who like learning about History on our campus. We arrange events open to everyone, students and faculty alike, to provide an opportunity for collegiality apart from formal interactions in class.
