Circle Leadership

Serving as an officer for your college or university’s OΔK circle—whether as a student or a faculty member—is a rewarding experience that helps you network, develop your leadership skills, and contribute to your community.

Most circles have an entire slate of student officers but, at the very least, there are three key people who work together to maintain the OΔK Idea within each circle.

See Roles and Responsibilities of the student president, circle coordinator, and faculty advisor.
