Dr. Bob Rogow, dean of the College of Business and Technology at Eastern Kentucky University, has been appointed as interim president-elect of Phi Kappa Phi.

Rogow will serve in the position through August, filling the vacancy left by the death of Ray Sylvester, who passed away on Feb. 5 after a brief illness.

“In asking Dr. Rogow to fill the unexpired term until our August convention, the Board has affirmed its confidence in the leadership (Dr. Rogow) showed previously as both a member and chair of the Board,” said Phi Kappa Phi Executive Director Dr. Mary Todd.

Rogow had previously served three-year terms as president-elect (2004-07) and president (2007-10) as well as a two-year term as past president (2010-12).

Founded in 1897 and headquartered in Baton Rouge, La., Phi Kappa Phi is the nation’s oldest, largest and most selective all-discipline honor society. The Society, which annually inducts approximately 30,000 students, faculty, professional staff and alumni, has chapters at more than 300 select colleges and universities in North America and the Philippines, including EKU. Membership is by invitation only to the top 10 percent of seniors and graduate students and 7.5 percent of juniors. Faculty, professional staff and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction also qualify.
