Omicron Delta Kappa is the first college honor society of a national scope to give recognition for leadership. Since its founding, over 300,000 individuals from over 300 college and university campuses across the United States have been recognized for meritorious leadership and service in extracurricular activities. Your loved one has an opportunity to be recognized for his or her leadership achievements in one of the recognized Five Phases of Campus Life:
- Campus or Community Service, Social and Religious Activities, and Campus Government
- Journalism, Speech and the Mass Media
- Creative and Performing Arts
Omicron Delta Kappa is as much an obligation and responsibility in leadership
as it is a mark of highest distinction and honor. Membership is awarded to
undergraduate junior and senior students; to graduate students; to faculty,
staff, administration, and alumni; and to persons qualifying for membership
"honoris causa." Student membership candidates must rank in the upper
35 percent of their school or college and must show leadership in at least one
of the five phases of campus life.
Contact the Faculty Secretary at the Circle at your college or university to find out how they select members.
