Kappa Gamma Pi

Kappa Gamma Pi Membership

Kappa Gamma Pi was founded in 1926 at the National Catholic Educational Association Conference of Catholic Colleges for Women. Over 60,000 graduates of 143 Catholic colleges and universities are Kappa Gamma Pi members.

Kappa Gamma Pi is the National Catholic College Graduate Honor Society. Members are graduates who have demonstrated academic excellence and outstanding leadership during their college years. As a candidate, you pledge to continue to provide examples of scholarship, leadership and service in your personal and professional lives. This commitment to ongoing service is the difference that distinguishes nomination to Kappa Gamma Pi.
