Kappa Delta Pi, an International Honor Society in Education, was founded March 8, 1911, at the University of Illinois. Organized to recognize excellence in education, Kappa Delta Pi elects those to membership who exhibit the ideals of scholarship, high personal standards, and promise in teaching and allied professions. It encourages improvement, distinction in achievement, and contributions to education.
Kappa Delta Pi is an honor society of, about, and for educators. Selection as a member of Kappa Delta Pi is based on high academic achievement, a commitment to education as a career, and a professional attitude that assures steady growth in the profession.
Membership in Kappa Delta Pi signifies more than a well-deserved line on a résumé. Members have the responsibility as a recognized honor student and honored educator to maintain the high ideals of the Society and to extend its influence.
