Kappa Delta is committed to providing all members opportunities for growth and lifetime learning. Our member education includes quality programming on important topics.
Relevant member education begins soon after a new member accepts her bid. National Kappa Delta provides an extensive curriculum, and each new member receives a copy of the Norman Shield, a guide for the new member period. Designed around Kappa Delta's "Live GREAT" values, the book includes educational and interactive chapters that help new members learn about Kappa Delta and our expectations.
Beyond the new member phase, all initiated members participate in member education workshops, which are held in conjunction with chapter meetings to keep from overtaxing already busy schedules. Chapter members complete educational sessions on the following topics:
•Ritual and Heritage
Chapter leaders also develop workshops on the four PACE topics based on members' interests and needs of the chapter. These workshops often utilize outside speakers and campus resources.
• Personal Presence – focuses on body image, self-esteem, embracing differences and other related topics. The workshop highlights our commitment to building confidence in women.
• Attitude – centers on how an individual's attitude can impact her success in college, in relationships and in life.
• Communication – focuses on helping members develop effective communication skills, both written and verbal.
• Enlarging Our World – encourages members to expand their view of the world and learn more about global issues and people from diverse backgrounds.
