Kappa Delta Pi: Beta Iota Chapter

Western Michigan University's International Honors Society in Education



 Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education,was founded by Dr. William Bagley in 1911 at the University of Illinois.  It 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 that it is today, comprising 582 chapters and more than 45,000 members. 


 Kappa Delta Pi members keep good company.  Albert Einstein, George Washington Carver, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Margaret Mead are just a few of the historically known members.  Current renowned members include Barbara Morgan, Alfie Kohn, Lisa Delpit, Andy Hargreaves, James Banks, and Howard Gardner.  To date, more than 1,200,000 educators worldwide have been inducted into this international honor society.

President's Notes

Hi! Welcome to the WMU Kappa Delta Pi, Beta Iota website! :D

My name is Katelyn Seelye and I am the President of the Beta Iota chapter. We are currently the only education RSO at WMU and revived this organization in hopes to create a strong education community within the College of Education and Human Development. All of our information is located on here to help you get to know more about us. We do accept all undergraduate and graduate level education students. Everyone starts as an honorary member and then will be inducted into the honor society once all requirements have been met.

Please take the time to read through our website and specifically the requirements to be inducted into the society. Also look at the difference between an honorary and inducted member. If you're interested in becoming a part of our organization please contact one of the executive board members!!
