Organization Overview

Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society, was founded December 3, 1914 at Washington & Lee University in Lexington, Virginia by 15 student and faculty leaders. The founders formulated the idea that leadership of exceptional quality and versatility in college should be recognized, that representatives in all phases of college life should cooperate in worthwhile endeavors, and that outstanding students, faculty, and administrators should meet on a basis of mutual interest, understanding and helpfulness. ODK was the first college honor society of a national scope to give recognition and honor for meritorious leadership and service in extracurricular activities and to encourage development of general campus citizenship. Chapters, which we call Circles, are located on more than 300 campuses throughout the nation. The Society recognizes achievement in the following five areas: Scholarship Athletics Campus/ Community Service, Social/Religious Activities, and Campus Government Journalism, Speech and the Mass Media Creative and Performing Arts Additional information about ODK can be found at and Applications are accepted from juniors, seniors and graduate students each fall and winter semester.
