OMICRON DELTA KAPPA
Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society, recognizes versatile student leaders for achievement in the following five areas:
- Campus/Community Service, Campus Government, and Social/Religious Activities
- Journalism, Speech & Mass Media
- Creative & Performing Arts
Membership in Omicron Delta Kappa requires individuals to advance the Honor Society's five point program for college campuses which includes: (1) Inculcating the purposes of ODK into campus life; (2) Providing intellectual leadership for campus movements; (3) Coordinating constructive movements; (4) Preserving worthwhile campus traditions and customs; and (5) Improving the general welfare of the SUU student body.
ODK Members have hosted campus-wide forums for students and exceptional community leaders to interact and exchange ideas, raised funds for a local non-profit by running a 186-mile relay, and coordinating an essay contest to engage SUU students with the University's rich history. Students interested in joining ODK should anticipate being actively involved with the organization's programs, activities, and events.
To be eligible for membership in Omicron Delta Kappa, students must be a junior, senior or graduate student and possess a cumulative GPA placing them in the top 35 percent of their college or school. Candidates must also demonstrate an exceptional record of involvement and leadership in at least one of the five areas listed above. Candidates are invited to join ODK after applying for membership. If selected for membership, students must pay a one-time membership fee of $85.00.
