Volunteer to Help O∆K

When you graduate from college, your relationship with Omicron Delta Kappa doesn’t need to end. There are many opportunities to continue your involvement with our Society.

Supporting circles

If you are completing your undergraduate degree and are moving to a new institution for graduate or professional school where there is a circle of O∆K located, you may affiliate with that circle. Contact information for all circles may be found by searching on the O∆K website. You do not need to transfer your membership; you just need to decide to participate in circle activities.

Omicron Delta Kappa relies upon faculty and staff volunteers to also be engaged in the lives of our circles. If a new job brings you to a campus where O∆K is located, consider getting involved with the circle by reaching out to the officers listed on the O∆K website. Each circle is required to have four faculty or staff members included in its voting membership. Given the unique intergenerational nature of Omicron Delta Kappa, your involvement will be welcome!

If you are not directly affiliated with a campus, there are other ways in which you may assist local circles. Click here to learn more.

Supporting O∆K at the national level

All members, including those that have left the collegiate environment, have other opportunities to serve O∆K. For shorter-term engagements, you may:

• review applications for O∆K Foundation Scholarships;
• help with onsite arrangements at the annual national leadership conference;
• be a champion for the National Day of Giving;
• write for The Circle, O∆K blog, or the online leadership hub; or
• capture images for O∆K communications as a photographer;

If you are interested in longer-term involvement opportunities with Omicron Delta Kappa, you may also:

• express your interest in serving as a member of the Society Board of Directors or Foundation Board of Trustees;
• secure contributions from members of your circle as an annual fund agent;
• apply to serve on a national committee; or
• help establish or re-establish a circle.
