Delta Alpha Pi—An International Honor Society for Students with Disabilities

Nava Silton

Delta Alpha Pi is an academic honor society specifically for high-achieving college students, at the undergraduate and graduate level, who have disabilities. The society was founded in 2004 at East Stroudsburg University in Pennsylvania. The society was founded with the goals of breaking the negative stereotypes of individuals with disabilities, and giving students with disabilities recognition for their academic excellence while developing skills in leadership, advocacy and education. The three Greek letters have their own special meanings. The delta stands for disability and the triangle is a symbol of strength. Alpha stands for achievement and since alpha is the first letter, it signifies that academic achievement must come first. The third letter, pi represents pride. Over 100 institutions have formed chapters so far including Northeastern University, University of Michigan, Cornell University, University of Maryland and Syracuse University.
