Founded in 1911, Kappa Delta Pi was established to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. Pioneering from its beginning by initiating women as well as men, the Society grew from a local chapter to the international organization it is today.

Membership to the University of Richmond Theta Theta chapter of Kappa Delta Pi is by invitation only for those that meet the 3.2 GPA for undergraduates and a 3.8 GPA for students in the graduate program.

The Education Department faculty reviews each prospective candidate. Letters of invitation are extended to initiates mid-point of each semester of the academic year.

The Kappa Delta Pi initiation ceremony is held on a Thursday evening mid-point in the semester from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Students must complete the Kappa Delta Pi application and submit dues that are $45.00 for Kappa Delta Pi International and $5.00 for University of Richmond Theta Theta chapter.

The service project for the Theta Theta chapter is Youth Life Foundation.

Questions related to Kappa Delta Pi can be directed to Dr. Mavis Brown.
