KAPPA DELTA PI Honor Society, CHI KAPPA Chapter

Kappa Delta Pi, an International Honor Society in Education, was founded March 8, 1911 at the University of Illinois. The Chi Kappa Chapter of Lewis-Clark State College was installed in 1996 and was the first Idaho chapter; it became the last chapter necessary to complete membership in all fifty states. The Chi Kappa Chapter promotes better teaching and learning through identification and recognition of both outstanding teacher candidates and practicing educators.  Teacher candidates must possess a grade point average of no less than 3.5 and be nominated on the basis of demonstrated potential to become strong leaders in Education.  Practicing educators are nominated by a committee of their peers as individuals who have demonstrated high scademic ideals and made significant contributions to the education profession.  The chapter sponsors several annual social and professional activities, and members have the opportunity to represent the chapter at the biennial national conference.
