Judd Named Lifetime Member of Education Honor Society

The Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi inducted CCSU President Emeritus Richard L. Judd ’59 and seven others into its membership on Oct. 28 during KDP’s 51st biennial convocation in Pittsburgh.
Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education, was founded in 1911 to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. KDP established the Eleanor Roosevelt Chapter in 2013 to honor significant and long-term contributions to KDP and to the field of education. Nominations are open only to those with a minimum of 20 years of membership in KDP; membership in the ERC is a lifetime honor and is limited to 100 living members.

Judd, initiated in 1973, has served as counselor of the Epsilon Mu Chapter; inaugural chair of the KDP Foundation Board; convocation parliamentarian; KDP president; and chair of the Audit Committee.

During his 40 years at CCSU, Dr. Judd served as director of the Student Center (1964-70), dean of Student Affairs (1970-80), executive dean for Institutional Advancement and University Affairs (1980-92), vice president for University Affairs (1992-96), and as president from 1996 to 2004. He launched the Richard L. Judd Scholarship Fund in 1990, which awards annual scholarships to Central students who demonstrate “exemplary involvement and leadership in student or community activities.” The Judd family established a second fund, the Larkin-Fox Fund, in 2013 in honor of Judd’s wife, Nancy’s, parents and aunt that supports University theatre productions, art exhibitions, and musical performances.

The School of Education & Professional Studies awarded Dr. Judd a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2016.
