Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education

Kappa Delta Pi, an international honorsociety 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.

The Zeta Zeta Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi has been active on the New Paltz campus for more than a half of a century. In that time, many great educators have graced the rolls of Kappa Delta Pi, Zeta Zeta Chapter.

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