  • Delta Alpha Pi Honor Society

    The LaGuardia Delta Alpha Pi (DAPi) International Honor Society, was established in May 2016 to celebrate and support the academic achievements of our students with disabilities. LaGuardia is proud to be the first City University of New York (CUNY) college to establish an official chapter of the international honor society for the top community college students across the world. 

  •  Joining Delta Alpha PI

    Delta Alpha Pi Honor Society presents an opportunity to change that perception of students with disabilities by recognizing their academic accomplishments and facilitating development of skills in leadership, advocacy and education for participating students.

    • Delta – D for Disability, but also the triangle, symbol of strength. Members of Delta Alpha Pi demonstrate strength as leaders on campus to help break down the barriers of negativism. They serve as mentors and role models for other students with disabilities.

    • Alpha – A for Achievement and advocacy. Alpha is the beginning and academic achievement must come first. Along with advocacy because students must advocate for themselves before they can advocate for others. Members of Delta Alpha Pi enhance advocacy skills for themselves and for the rights of all individuals with disabilities to be included fully in society.

    • Pi – P for Pride, pride in academic achievement and in other accomplishments, not just as students with disabilities but as members of the university community.
