May we sisters in Kappa Delta strive each day to seek more earnestly the honorable and beautiful things.
May we each day through love of those within our circle, learn to know and understand better those without our circle.
May the diamond shield that guards our love find us each day Truer, Wiser, More Faithful, More Loving and More Noble.
Kappa Delta Sorority is a national organization for women committed to:
Inspiring our members to reach their full potential;
Preparing our members for community service, active leadership and responsible citizenship;
Creating opportunities for lifetime involvement through innovative and responsive programs, and

Kappa Delta's values are the core around which we center our organization's operations. Committing to our values means inspiring each and every member to become a woman of greatness.
