Phi Delta Kappa
Founded in 1906, Phi Delta Kappa (PDK) is the premier professional association for
educators. Since its founding, this member-based association has been a dedicated
advocate for public schools and strives to prepare the next generation of educators.
Through a wide range of innovative initiatives based on visionary leadership, relevant
research, and dedicated service, PDK serves practicing teachers, administrators, college
educators, and those concerned about public education. Over 300 of PDK’s 50,000 members
are alumni of Pepperdine University’s Graduate School of Education and Psychology.
The PDK website and publications focus on cutting-edge information for teachers and administrators and provide topical and timely advice for teachers at all levels. In addition, PDK members may purchase a commemorative medallion through PDK International to wear at their graduation ceremony.
