Kappa Delta Pi, the international honor society for students majoring in education, has chartered a chapter at Georgia Gwinnett College, approving 110 students for membership.
“The purpose of Kappa Delta Pi is to promote excellence in and recognize outstanding contributions to education,” said Marilyn Dolven, chapter advisor and assistant professor of curriculum and instruction in the GGC School of Education. “The society endeavors to maintain a high degree of honor achievement in educational work.”
Membership in Kappa Delta Pi is offered to students by recommendation of a faculty member. Candidates must also be accepted into the GGC teacher education program and have at least a 3.0 grade point average.
Honorary membership in the society was bestowed upon Daniel J. Kaufman, president of GGC, and Lois Richardson, Acting Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs.
Chapter officers are Courtney Mulkey and Jonathan Walters (co-presidents), Rebecca Allum (treasurer) and Alexis Rudolph (secretary).
Established at the University of Illinois in 1911, Kappa Delta Pi now has more than 45,000 members in 582 chapters worldwide. The GGC chapter was given the name Alpha Zeta Pi.
