Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education, was first organized in 1911, and the Alpha Xi Chapter at William & Mary was chartered in 1927. The purpose of Kappa Delta Pi is to encourage high professional intellectual and personal standards and to recognize graduates of the University for their outstanding contributions to education. To this end, the organization invites to membership persons who exhibit commendable personal qualities, worthy educational ideals, and sound scholarship. The organization endeavors to maintain a high degree of professional fellowship among its members and to quicken professional growth by honoring achievement in educational work.
To be considered for membership, undergraduates must have completed at least 6 credit hours of course work in the School of Education and have an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Graduate students must have completed 6 credits at William & Mary with an overall GPA of 3.25 or higher for all graduate courses completed.
Teachers who are in-service professionals shall submit proof of an undergraduate degree via an unofficial transcript. If the teacher is licensed and teaching and has a baccalaureate degree, there is no GPA requirement—only proof of a degree, the teacher’s current position title, and school name and district where they are teaching.
Students who meet eligibility requirements will be invited to submit an application for membership during the fall semester. For more information, please contact [[dsosbo, Dorothy Osborne]] .
