KDP Zeta Chapter

The Kappa Delta Pi (KDP) student organization at Southeastern is student-led. Members join both the local, Zeta, chapter and the International KDP organization.

The Zeta chapter members and officers decide on activities. Past activities have included:

  • Monthly meetings (scheduled in the evening so that student teacher residents can attend)
  • Socials for members following the meetings
  • Participation in service opportunities, including the Fall Dance for adults with exceptionalities
  • Collection of donations to benefit the community (e.g., school supplies, book drives, etc.)

 

Membership is determined by GPA and having at least 18 credit hours of collegiate work, which at least 6 hours are education coursework. Membership is open to both undergraduates and graduate. Members are inducted annually. During graduation, KDP members may wear a cord indicating their status as members of the KDP education honor society.
