Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education, founded by Dr. William Bagley in 1911 at the University of Illinois, was established to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. The founders chose the name from the Greek words to represent knowledge, duty, and power. Pioneering from its beginning by including women as well as men, Kappa Delta Pi grew from a local chapter to the international organization it is today, comprising 600 chapters and more than 40,000 members.
This organization was founded by our School of Education to provide service opportunities, professional development, and academic support to students in each of the majors that lead to teacher licensure. Selected workshops will be provided each year to promote student engagement with teaching professionals current in the field. Students will be given leadership opportunities through the planning and coordination of education activities such as, Children’s Festival and reading volunteers at the local elementary schools.
