KDP Members

KDP Members


Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible for membership. Since it is an honor society, students must meet certain criteria in order to be invited to join. Some criteria include having a certain GPA, taking at least two education courses, and being in good standing. Each September, invitations are sent to eligible students; these students can then join and be inducted into the society at the Initiation Ceremony.
