Kappa Delta Pi, an International Honor Society in education, is a prestigious organization dedicated to scholarship and excellence in education. Founded in 1911, the society has a long history of openness. It welcomes a wide variety of intellectual ideas regardless of gender, race, ethnic background, handicap, or age. Many famous educators, including Benjamin Bloom, James Fulbright, & Howard Gardner have been members of Kappa Delta Pi.
In the Gamma Mu chapter at Buffalo State, we believe that as a college student you can expand your educational experience through interaction with the community, educators, and other society members.
Kappa Delta Pi’s national headquarters in Indianapolis establishes the criteria for membership into the Gamma Mu Chapter at Buffalo State. Only the top 10 percent of students and professionals in the field of education are awarded membership. Initiation into the society requires a GPA of 3.2 or above, a major in education, and completion at least 30 total credit hours of course work at any college.
Letters of invitation are sent out in September to qualified students. If you do not receive a letter of invitation by the end of September and think you meet the criteria, you can nominate yourself.
