Founded in 1921, Phi Alpha Theta (ΦΑΘ) is a national history honors society designed to promote the study of history through the encouragement of research, publication, excellence in teaching, and intellectual exchange among students and historians. The CSI Chapter of Alpha Xi Theta (ΑΞΘ) of Phi Alpha Theta (ΦΑΘ) was founded in 2010 and has organized field trips, lectures, seminars and other events in pursuit of these goals, with the aim of fostering a sense of academic community between students and faculty within the CSI History Department.
