Kappa Delta Epsilon (KDE) is an honorary educational fraternity which supports the cause of education by fostering a spirit of fellowship, high standards of scholastic attainment and professional ideals among its members. We are an active group engaged in preparing our members for the teaching profession. Kappa Delta Epsilon was organized March 25, 1933 in Washington, DC.


To love, respect, understand, and guide the student for a life of unfolding possibilities is the task of the teacher; to give aid, counsel, and support to fellow teachers and to all agencies promoting the love of truth, beauty, and goodness is the privilege of the teacher.

Membership is in four general categories:

· Collegiate – undergraduate or graduate students enrolled in teacher education and faculty members at the same facility

· Alumni – graduates of teacher education in a four year institution, and current or former teachers

· Honorary – either national or local chapter (number is limited)

· Members at large – former collegiate or alumni members not currently affiliated with a chapter


*****Guidelines and specific requirements for membership are set by individual chapters
