Spring Commencement 2019

Honor Cords

The School of Education only provides honor cords to recipients of the Dean's Award for Academic Excellence and eligible Kappa Delta Pi members.  

Dean's Award for Academic Excellence

These School of Education seniors have attained academic distinction by establishing the highest university-wide grade-point averages among all School of Education undergraduate degree recipients. These students are signified in the academic procession by the wearing of a light blue and gold braid.

Kappa Delta Pi

To be eligible for a KDP honor cord you must be a member of KDP:

  • Average 25 participation points for each semester that you are involved in KDP - e.g. a senior who joined KDP in fall 2017 would need 100 points by graduation. Points are earned by volunteering at KDP events, attending meetings, donating books, chairing events, etc.
  • Members must be involved in KDP for at least two semesters.

The process:

  • KDP officers will review point totals by mid-April to determine who is eligible for cords and will notify recipients directly.
  • KDP distributes the honor cords. Recipients will be informed of this process in their notification letters. The colors of the cords are purple and green.

Please contact KDP Chapter President Sarah Mason with any further questions.
