Robin Capehart

A consultant and higher education administrator, Robin Capehart served as the president of West Liberty University for eight years. Before starting his career, Robin Capehart studied for his BA and JD at West Virginia University, where he was inducted into Phi Kappa Phi.

Founded in 1897, Phi Kappa Phi began as a collaborative of 10 senior students and two faculty members as a society that sought to recognize academic excellence in multiple disciplines. Today, it provides a number of scholarships and grants, including the Phi Kappa Phi Scholar Award and Phi Kappa Phi Artist Award.
The Scholar Award honors those who excel in research and teaching as well as public service, and the Artist Award goes to individuals who demonstrate not only academic scholarship, but also talent in the creative and graphic arts as well as the visual, performing, or fine arts. Both awards are biennial and recognize those who exemplify the values of the society through their achievements and activities. Phi Kappa Phi awards honorees with a $1,000 honorarium and recognition citation.
Another biennial award conferred by Phi Kappa Phi, the Ray Sylvester Distinguished Service Award recognizes an individual who has consistently demonstrated a commitment to volunteer service outside of academia. The recipient also garners a $1,000 honorarium and recognition citation.
