Welcome to Omicron Delta Kappa!

Omicron Delta Kappa is a 100-year old national leadership honor society that has initiated more than 300,000 members since its founding. The Society recognizes not only academic achievement but also campus leadership across the five phases of campus life:

  • Scholarship
  • Athletics
  • Campus or Community Service, Social or Religious Activities, and Campus Government
  • Journalism, Speech and the Mass Media
  • Creative and Performing Arts

OΔK has more than 285 active circles at colleges and universities across the United States. We remain committed to developing campus leaders who will become tomorrow’s community leaders.

Members display:

  • Exemplary character
  • Responsible leadership and service in campus and community life
  • Superior scholarship
  • Genuine fellowship
  • Consecration of democratic ideals

One thing that makes the Society unique is that—in addition to undergraduate students—membership is open to faculty, staff, alumni and graduate students. We believe that a diverse cross-section of the campus community strengthens each circle and allows students to learn from people in different stages of life.

Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa is granted to those who demonstrate leadership achievements in one of five phases of campus life:

  • Athletics
  • Campus or Community Service, Social and Religious Activities, and Campus Government
  • Creative and Performing Arts
  • Journalism, Speech and Mass Media
  • Scholarship

Members are:

  • Undergraduate students who are juniors or seniors and rank in the upper 35 percent of their class
  • Graduate students
  • Faculty and staff
  • Alumni who graduated more than five years ago
  • Local, national and international leaders who qualify for honorary membership

Members are expected to demonstrate:

  • Exemplary character
  • Responsible leadership and service in campus or community life
  • Superior scholarship
  • Genuine fellowship
  • Dedication to democratic ideals
