The Pi Chapter of Beta Phi Mu was founded at the University of Pittsburgh in 1967. Pi Chapter welcomes new initiates and elects new Chapter officers at an annual fall meeting. Each year Pi Chapter also makes available its Award for Scholarly Achievement to graduate students in the School of Computing and Information. Current Pi Chapter officers are:

  • Debbie Day, Chapter Advisor
  • Ryan Splenda, President
  • Dr. Bryan McGeary, Vice President
  • Jessica Danielle Smith, Past President
  • Carrie Wardzinski, Treasurer

The article “It’s an Honor: Fifty Years of Beta Phi Mu,” by Ron Chepesiuk, published in the December 1999 issue of American Libraries, offers a brief history of the national organization. Further information about Beta Phi Mu can be found here.
