Kappa Delta Pi
Originally founded in 1911 at the University of Illinois, Kappa Delta Pi is the International Honor Society in Education. As an International Honor Society, Kappa Delta Pi has adopted and continues to pledge fidelity to four cherished ideals: humanity, science, service and toil.
- The central ideal of fidelity to humanity is faith in the potential of all human beings, through education, to experience more meaningful lives.
- Fidelity to the ideal of science requires faithfulness to the cause of free inquiry.
- Fidelity to service implies working to enable learners and communities to achieve justice, peace, and a better quality of life for people everywhere.
- Pledging fidelity to toil, members demonstrate faith in the social necessity and intrinsic reward of the teaching profession, and they show their will to do what must be done.
To be a member of Kappa Delta Pi you must have:
- an overall GPA of 3.0 or better.
- at least 12 schedule hours of course work in Education
- worthy educational ideals, leadership potential, a commitment to education, and desirable personal qualities.
