About the Circle
Founded in 2006 and initiating about 25-30 members each year, the ODK Circle at Concordia University Irvine (CUI) is seen as the most prestigious leadership honor on campus. Although we know that members are among the busiest students on campus, we meet monthly.
Applications are sent to all academically eligible students in late October. For more information contact Faculty Advisor Mike Bergler (firstname.lastname@example.org) or 949-214-3187.
The Circle hosts a variety of programs throughout the year. Details will be shared via member-only emails and/or the MyCUI app when they are available.
Honors and Awards
Current and former members of the Circle have served on national committees for ODK. In our relatively short history, the Circle at CUI has received numerous honors and awards from the national office. Recent awards include:
– a Clay grant to support our fire relief service project following the Arrowhead fires.
– a national ODK scholar was awarded to alumna Jessi Cook
