The OΔK requires individuals to participate in an initiation ceremony to be considered a member. In these days of stay-at-home safety, the National Virtual Initiation Ceremony helps those who cannot attend a ceremony physically meet this final requirement of membership. Omicron Delta Kappa President and CEO Tara Singer will preside over the ceremony.
The schedule for National Virtual Initiation Ceremonies will be posted in August 2020.
The annual Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Conference includes keynote speakers, workshops, and service projects. Delegates from the circles across the country, as well as advisors and other collegiate members, join together for three days of leadership and learning. The 2021 NLC will be a virtual conference. Dates and times will be announced in August 2020.
What is special about the second Thursday in April? It’s your opportunity to join O∆K members across the country in service.
O∆K leaders embody servant leadership. You study, practice, organize and lead in order to give back. You lead because you care. You lead to serve. Although service is a part of everyday life for O∆K leaders, this is one special day each year when we all serve together. While we are spread across the country and serve our specific communities in a variety of ways, we join together one day in April in the spirit of servant leadership.
2021 National Day of Service: Thursday, April 8, 2021

At Omicron Delta Kappa, we believe in recognizing both individuals and circles that demonstrate exceptional leadership across the five phases of campus life and beyond.
We offer a series of awards that honor circles, both for their contributions to their campuses and for their dedication to supporting the national organization. At the individual level, we offer a number of awards that honor students, faculty secretaries and advisors, alumni and friends of OΔK.
Do you have a program idea for your circle? Does your circle already host an event or project that you want to build upon? Would you like a grant to help get started? Every fall, O∆K awards ten or more grants of approximately $500 to help develop leadership programs on campuses.

Every circle should have a signature leadership program. The Stone Ethical Leadership Challenge offers O∆K circles the opportunity to present a leadership program that has been developed and tested by O∆K leadership educators. O∆K can also provide funding support to implement the program.
