UMass Dartmouth’s Alpha Eta Alpha Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi recently inducted new students into the International Honor Society in Education. The society is a prestigious network of educators working together to support quality education for all.
It began in 1911 as the Illinois Education Club, and it was incorporated as the Honorary Education Fraternity, Kappa Delta Pi. In 1984, the title became Kappa Delta Pi, an International Honor Society in Education. In 2001, the title was shortened to Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education.
The International Teacher Educator Honor Society at UMass Dartmouth is one of only a few of its kind. UMass Dartmouth is only the second campus in the UMass system to have such an honor.
Dr. Sheila Macrine serves as Alpha Eta Alpha's Chapter counselor, and she has been passionate and influential in the establishment of UMass Dartmouth Kappa Delta Pi chapter.
Chartered in 2013, UMass Dartmouth’s chapter recognizes outstanding student contributions to education. Members must maintain a high degree of professional fellowship and be committed to achievement in their educational studies. Undergraduates must attain a 3.25 GPA and graduate students a 3.5 GPA for consideration into the honor society.
