Kappa Delta Pi is the world's largest association of outstanding education professionals, and is the only organization that represents all educators—regardless of subject area specialty, degree attained, grade-level focus, or years of teaching experience.

Though diverse, all KDP members share a common purpose: We are a community of outstanding educators committed to promoting excellence in education. To this end, we recognize and advance scholarship, leadership, and service.

The USF chapter has been active since 1968. We provide professional development programs as well as service to the community through our Literacy Alive program. Members may apply for scholarships and classroom teaching grants and receive quarterly professional journals. KDP also provides members access to a 24-7 hot line, free professional development webinars and current information on certification and licensure for all 50 states. An honor to join – A benefit to belong
