Collection Historical Note

Phi Delta Kappa (PDK) was founded on January 24, 1906 and is headquartered in Bloomington, Indiana. PDK is a professional organization for educators and those interested in education. It has grown into an international organization, Phi Delta Kappa International, which not only governs PDK but also two other professional societies, Pi Lambda Theta (PLT) and Educators Rising. PDK International has thousands of members, including teachers, principals, and administrators, dedicated to improving education and is one of the world’s largest education associations. Its mission is “to grow and connect leaders in education” and its vision is “to be the experts in cultivating great educators for tomorrow while continuing to ensure high-quality education for today.” Members are affiliated directly through the international organization or one of several hundred chapters that are mostly located on college campuses.

The NIU Chapter (#100) was established in 1957 and continued its existence until July 2008. The NIU Chapter merged with other local chapters, Will County PDK Chapter (#1374), North Central College/Haywood PDK Chapter (#1106), and Northwest Suburban Cook County PDK Chapter (#1315), to form the Great Northern Illinois Area PDK Chapter (#1600). At the time of the merger, there were 312 members in the of GNIA Chapter. In August 2010, the Sinnissippi PDK Chapter became part of the GNIA Chapter. The GNIA Chapter was disbanded on October 15, 2015.
