Kappa Beta Delta, an international honor society has more than 300 lifetime members inducted at Metropolitan Community College. Each year, between 20 and 25 students are inducted as lifetime members based upon achieving academic excellence with a minimum of 3.5 GPA and 24 earned hours of college credit. Kappa Beta Delta (KBD) has a mission to encourage accomplishment among business and management students while pursuing an associate degree and to promote a life distinguished by honorable service to humankind. As such, the purpose of the service learning leadership project is to promote this mission while developing leadership skills needed as a future business professional in the community.
As a lifetime member inducted into Kappa Beta Delta, students are encouraged to engage in a community based project that will enable them to apply the concepts and theory introduced in the class. This will develop leadership capabilities and enable the student to use creativity, innovation and problem solving skills. Criteria for successful completion by the student includes developing a practical solution to a community based project which enables them to:
• Apply business principles, concepts and practices learned as a college student
• Develop leadership and teamwork skills and apply creativity and innovation
• Support the KBD and Service Learning mission of service to the community
• Partner with an area business to solve a real problem with documented results outcome
• Earn transcript credit as official documentation of project results and achievement

The Service Learning Leadership project is a community based, team project that would include between 10-15 students per year as active participants in the program.
