What is DAPi?

Delta Alpha Pi is an academic honor society founded to recognize high-achieving students with disabilities who are attending colleges (including community colleges) and universities as undergraduate or graduate students.  This dynamic organization celebrates and supports academic achievement, leadership and advocacy for post-secondary students with disabilities.  Over 150 institutions have established a chapter to recognize students’ academic achievement.
