Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education

Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society for educators, was founded by a dedicated group of educators believing in the four pillars of the organization: fidelity to humanity, service, science, and toil. There are more than 500 chapters across the United States, meaning that a member can go anywhere and find an educator who shares the same ideals.

More information about the international organization may be found on its website.
