KAPPA DELTA PI
Kappa Delta Pi 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 it is today, comprising 600
chapters and more than 40,000 members.
Pi is to sustain an honored community of diverse
educators by promoting excellence and advancing
scholarship, leadership, and service.
Pi is to help committed educators be leaders in
improving education for global citizenship.
