Concordia University – Irvine



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. Check the Facebook page for details.

Applications are sent to all academically eligible students in January/February. For more information contact Faculty Advisor Mike Bergler ( or 949-214-3187.


The Circle hosts a variety of programs throughout the year. Details will be posted on Facebook as they become available.

Save the date – Wednesday, December 3 – as we will host a special event for all ODK members to mark the Centennial of the Omicron Delta Kappa Society.

Honors and Awards

In our relatively short history, the Circle at CUI has received numerous honors and awards from the national office. These 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
– consistent recognition as a Circle of Distinction
