About Honors Council

Founded in 1989, the SDSU Honors Council (HC) comprises student and faculty representatives of the Weber Honors College and of the six, campus-wide multidisciplinary honor societies: Phi Eta Sigma, Golden Key, Phi Kappa Phi, Mortar Board, Phi Beta Kappa, and Scholars Without Borders. The purposes of the Honors Council are to:


  • act as an advisory and coordinating resource center for the interdisciplinary honor societies on campus;
  • promote the specific interests of the above listed honor societies;
  • promote the common concerns of all honor societies and honors programs at San Diego State University;
  • cooperate with the faculty and administrative officers in developing and maintaining high academic standards;
  • recognize students and faculty for their achievements in scholarship,  leadership, and service; and
  • represent the University’s honor societies on the Associated Students Council.
