Ronald Tulley Elected to the Phi Kappa Phi Board of Directors
University of Findlay College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences’ Dean Ronald Tulley, Ph.D. was elected to the Board of Directors for the national offices of the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi–the nation’s oldest and most selective multidisciplinary collegiate honor society. Phi Kappa Phi’s mission is “to recognize and promote academic excellence in all fields of higher education and to engage the community of scholars in service to others.”
The Society’s board of directors consists of 12 members working in conjunction with five elected divisional vice presidents from each of the Society’s divisions, and five student vice presidents that comprise the student engagement panel known as the council of students. “Aside from the president (Dr. Lora Becker), I am the only member from a small, Christian-affiliated institution, the only director from Ohio, and the first person at UF to ever serve on its Board,” said Dr. Tulley, “The board is driven by academics and I look forward to being involved at the national level.”
Tulley has been an active leader of Phi Kappa Phi at the local and national levels. At Findlay, he was a founding member of the Phi Kappa Phi chapter. He served Phi Kappa Phi as divisional vice president, Division IV, for the 2020-22 biennium, after serving as both member and chair of the Fellowship Committee and a member of the Love of Learning Committee.
Tulley holds a Ph.D. in English from Case Western Reserve University, master’s degrees in English, curriculum and instruction, health informatics, and business administration, and bachelor’s degrees in both English and history. He was initiated into Phi Kappa Phi as a student at Southern Illinois University in 1994.
