VIU & Kappa Delta Pi Partnership

Virginia International University is pleased to announce that a partnership has been established with Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society in Education. VIU will serve as a Liaison Chapter for Kappa Delta Pi (KDP). KDP is an internationally recognized, prestigious international honor society in education that has been in existence since 1911. KDP was established to foster excellence in education as well as to provide resources and promote fellowship among educators. As such, student membership in KDP is an honor and demonstrates devotion to and stellar performance in the field of education.

Partnership with KDP will provide increased professional opportunities for students by providing resources and networking opportunities on a global scale. More importantly, membership in KDP will assist in connecting students with other pre-service and in-service teachers internationally, providing resources for teaching (including tips, best practices, research, publication opportunities, etc.), providing opportunities for professional development (through conferences, workshops, etc.), and by providing recognition for students as members of an international honor society. Additionally, student membership in KDP will provide internship and volunteer opportunities to our students through the KDP network across the globe.
