Omicron Delta Kappa, the National Leadership Honor Society, recognizes and encourages superior leadership and exemplary character. ODK encourages collaboration among members across the five pillars celebrated by ODK: academics and research, athletics, service to campus and community, communications, and the creative and performing arts. Founded in 1914 at Washington and Lee University, ODK honors and develops leaders through scholarships, workshops, career opportunities, leadership resources, and a lifelong connection to other members. The Society also champions the leadership ideals of collaboration, inclusivity, integrity, scholarship, and service.
ODK has more than 300 circles at colleges and universities across the United States. We remain committed to developing campus leaders who will become tomorrow’s community leaders.
Two things make the Society unique. First, ODK encourages collaboration among leaders across campus. We believe that strong leaders become stronger leaders through this fellowship.
The second thing that makes the Society unique is that—in addition to undergraduate students—membership is open to faculty, staff, alumni, and graduate students. We belie...ve that a diverse cross-section of the campus community strengthens each circle and allows students to learn from people in different stages of life.
Omicron Delta Kappa is headquartered in Lexington, Virginia. The Society’s offices are in the town’s historic train station. The train station was built in 1883 by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad.
