Kappa Delta Pi (KDP)
Kappa Delta Pi (KDP) is the national honorary society for juniors and seniors in Educational Studies and Music Education. One goal of the organization is to offer professional development opportunities for all teacher candidates. Members of the society are eligible to participate in workshops, scholarship and award programs and also receive publications updating members on education‐related issues. IWU education students initiated to the Kappa Theta Chapter exhibit promise in the teaching profession and have achieved distinction by maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.60 or higher. Chapter members collaborate with the Student Education Association (SEA) members in organizing the Annual Student Teaching Symposium and assist during the Annual Inquiries into Teaching and Learning Conference.
