About Omicron Delta Kappa
Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society was founded December 3, 1914, at Washington and Lee University, by fifteen students and faculty leaders. They felt that there was a need to recognize leadership and bring together faculty and students from the various phases of college life. They believed that through the sharing of opportunities and experience both the members of the society and the institution would benefit.
