Mission Statement

Alpha Delta Kappa is an international honorary organization of women educators dedicated to educational excellence, altruism and world understanding.

History of ADK

Alpha Delta Kappa was founded in 1947 by Agnes Shipman Robertson, Marie Neal, Marion Southall and Hattie Poppino, visionary women who saw a need to recognize and support the professional efforts of outstanding women educators. More than 40,000 women educators around the world have discovered the many opportunities provided by membership in Alpha Delta Kappa - opportunities for recognition of their committment to educational excellence, for personal and professional growth and for collectively channelling their energies toward the good of their schools, communities, the teaching profession and the world. Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, Alpha Delta Kappa has more than 1,400 chapters in towns and cities in every state in the U.S., and around the world in Australia, Canada, Jamaica, Mexico and Puerto Rico. Membership, which is honorary based on peer recognition, provides a wealth of opportunities for leadership development and networking through workshops, training sessions, conferences and conventions. But, perhaps the greatest opportunity Alpha Delta Kappa provides is the opportunity to make a difference. Around the world, Alpha Delta Kappa members combine their energies and talents to enrich their lives and the lives of others through thousands of heartwarming, community-based altruistic projects.


* To give recognition to outstanding women educators who are actively engaged in teaching, administration, or some specialized field of the teaching profession. * To build a fraternal fellowship which will add to their effectiveness in the promotion of excellence in education. * To promote high standards in education and to assist in strengthening the status and advancement of the teaching profession. * To promote educational and charitable projects and activities, to sponsor scholarships, to further maintain worthy standards in the field of education, and to cooperate with worthy community programs relating to education and charities. * To contribute to world understanding, goodwill and peace through an international fellowship of women educators united in the ideals of education.
