This year’s induction ceremony marked a reorganization and renewal for Mason’s Nu Alpha Chapter prompted by increased student interest in the many benefits of Kappa Delta Pi membership. The organization offers a lifelong connection to its more than 40,000 active members and 1.2 million alumni from their early undergraduate years, through their professional progress, and even into retirement. In addition to Kappa Delta Pi’s networking benefits, members have access to continuing education, scholarship and grant funding, and publication opportunities.
The CEHD Office of Student and Academic Affairs congratulates the newest members of Kappa Delta Pi and looks forward to sharing more news from the Nu Alpha Chapter in the fall. Please contact to learn how you can become a member of Kappa Delta Pi.
