In 1960, Ferris became a chartered member of Pi Kappa Delta national forensics honorary. Pi Kappa Delta is an honorary consisting of educators, students and alumni committed to encouraging the education of articulate citizens through a three-part focus:
1. The commitment to and promotion of ethical, humane and inclusive communication and educational practices.
2. The commitment to and promotion of professional development of forensics educators.
3. The commitment to and promotion of comprehensive forensics programming.
Ferris students can earn membership in Pi Kappa Delta by participating on the Debate or Speech/Forensics teams.
Since our chartering, two Ferris coaches have served as president of the national organization: Gary Horn in 1985–1987 and Sandra Alspach in 2005–2007.
